Parsnip - Kralcrown - 61RW55Details The key to growing parsnips is using fresh seed, many gardens say they have no luck growing parsnips which is normally because of using old seed, parsnip seed only remains viable for two years at room temperature, so having our seed frozen keeps the seed from aging, as well as its regrown every two years.
This cross pollination carried by Richard in 2010 was between Hollow crown and Kral, hence the Kralcrown. The selection work that's carried out with this new variety involves growing it for one full season, seed is sown Aug, a year later they are dug up and only the healthiest, longest widest roots are replanted again for flowering/seed in spring.
To insure good germination all parsnip seed that has been out of frozen storage more than 12 months is removed from sale and is gifted out to customers.
