Parsnips are long roots, much like a carrot, that have a flavor resembling that of nuts. The 'Harris Model' parsnip is a great variety that has uniform white roots. The roots grow up to 12" long with tender, sweet flesh. The 'Harris Model' parsnip is an All-American Selections winner. Can be boiled, fried or sauteed in butter. This improved variety has whiter roots and is free of side roots. Can be left in the ground all winter without protection for spring use. Freezing improves flavor. Suitable for home garden and market growers.
