Lancer Parsnip Seeds


Latin name: Pastinaca sativa

Picked young and tender, the roots of the Lancer parsnip are delicious raw; in a salad or grated with oil and lemon. This variety is also excellent in soups, stews, and vegetable dishes. You can also use it mashed, sautéed, or in fries. Frost enhances the sweet and delicate flavour.

Sow in very well prepared soil. Good digging is essential. Sow in early spring. Cover with 12 mm of well-packed soil, no more. Space rows 60 cm apart. When the young shoots are about 5 cm high, thin them to 8 cm apart. As parsnips germinate very slowly, a few radish seeds can be sown to mark the rows until the parsnips germinate. Harvest in late fall. Frost improves the flavour (makes it sweeter). You can keep your parsnips in the garden for a long time despite frosts by protecting them with straw.
