If you keen on reducing the chemicals used in your veg garden then Parsnip Albion is an improved smooth-skinned hybrid, producing long, firm, roots of superb flavour and texture so no compromise in flavour as can sometimes happen with breeding, think of Roses! Especially bred for resistance to the very latest strains of disease, including canker making it ideal for organic growing. That Sunday roast or winter casserole would not be the same without parsnip!

Sow outdoors into finely tilthed soil from February to May - try and remove all stones so you get straight roots. Firm down and keep soil damp. Do not sow into manured soil as it will cause roots to fork. Seedlings will need thinning out to approximately 100cm.

Average packet contents 380 seeds.
