Guernsey is a well regarded but difficult to find, medium rooted, smooth, tapered, wide shouldered variety with a firm, white skin and a nutty flavour well suited to braising and roasting. This French Heirloom is often considered to have the most delicious flavour of all parsnip varieties. It is an excellent variety for heavy soils or where deep digging is not warrented. Parsnip seed should be sown soon after receiving it as it does not keep well. Germination is aided by storing in the fridge for 10 days prior to planting Planting Instructions: Depth of seed 0.5-1cm deep Spaced 8-10cm apart. Rows 35-50cm apart Sowing Time: Tropics from March to May Subtropics from February to September Temperate from July to March Cold areas from August to February Parsnips do not like extremely hot weather and they will do very well in frosty conditions. Frost changes the sugars in the plant making the roots sweeter to the taste buds.
