The Hollow crown Pastinaca sativa European Heirloom; long roots, large crowns.
Hollow crown Pastinaca sativa
Over 200 years old and still pretty hard to beat! Rich true parsnip flavour which, in our view, is unsurpassed.
Roots can be up to 12″ (30 cm) long and 3″ (7.5 cm) in diameter; as the name suggests, they are hollow crowned. Flavour is gorgeously sweet and mellow.
Couple that with this variety’s reliability, resistance to canker and high yield and you will understand why this has been a crop in our own family vegetable gardens every year for more than fifty years now!
