Parsnip Harris Model Seeds
The Harris Model parsnip is one of the more commonly grown varieties thanks to its long tap root and rich, nutty flavor. While it can often take a bit longer than other types of parsnips to sprout and mature, germination rates are usually quite high, and the roots can reach up to 12″ in length! In addition to having high yields, the Harris Model parsnip often develops a beautiful, almost pure white flesh as opposed to the creamy hue of most other varieties
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.
