Parsnip - Hollow Crown - 63RG56

Details  The Hollow Crown dates back to the early 1820s, a long tapered white root that has been grown and selected by Rick for over twenty years, if you wish to grow this long rooted parsnip, you will need deep soil that is stone free. If parsnips hit a stone while growing they tend to fork.
They grow best in a light, deep rich soil. A generous amount of compost or humus in some other form helps develop a long eatable root.

Parsnip is notoriously difficult to grow for many gardeners because of parsnip seeds short lifespan, so to help with good germination all our parsnip seed is grown each year meaning seed is no more than 12 months when sold.
