Parsnip Hollow Crown

Price £ 1.60

Short description

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!
