Parsnip Palace F1

Description

RHS Award

Palace F1 Parsnip is an established leader in the market place. It is a variety that produces an outstandingly high yield of smooth skinned roots with shallow crowns. It is an early to maincrop variety which shows some resistance to canker.

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!
