Parsnips produce roots with a sweet, nutty flavour and crisp texture. The flavour is best if timed to mature during cool weather. Roots are yellowish-white, shaped like a carrot, and may grow to 12in (30cm) long and 2in (5cm) across at the top. Use in stews and soups, steamed, sauteed in butter, or shredded raw in salads. A very heavy-yielding root crop.
