Parsnip Countess F1

Description

Countess F1 Parsnip is a main crop variety with a good disease tolerance and the production of a high yield. The root forms a smooth skin and is very uniform in shape. Making it the ideal choice for the show bench.

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!
