A favourite for the show bench, Hollow Crown Parsnip is one of the oldest varieties which produces long tapering roots of nice white skin and well textured flesh. They do however need good deep soil for the best results.
Parsnip is a particularly British vegetable because of its winter hardiness. Thankfully it is now reviving as a popular choice thanks to more imaginative uses in cooking. Roast with your Sunday joint or par-boil, roll in flour and Parmesan cheese and roast, delicious!
