All Amercian Parsnip Seed
All American Parsnip is a cool-weather biennial grown as an annual. Parsnips taste best if brought to harvest in cool weather. Sow parsnip seed directly in the garden 2 to 3 weeks before the average date of the last frost in spring. In warm-winter regions, parsnips can be planted in autumn.
Parsnip is a creamy white root that grows from 4 to 9 inches long, similar to a carrot in appearance and tasty like a celery heart. The parsnip is a biennial grown as an annual. A rosette of celery like leaves grow from the top of the fleshy root.
Planting and spacing. Sow parsnip seeds ½ inch deep and 1 inch apart in wide rows; thin seedlings to 3 to 4 inches apart. Space rows 18 to 24 inches apart. Thin seedlings after they develop two true leaves; cut off thinned seedlings at soil level to avoid disturbing remaining seedlings. Thinning is important; parsnips require adequate space for root development.
