Mostly used in stir-fries or soup The root is excellent raw, for pickling or as a garnish. This variety can be dated back to 1880. It is a slow bolting variety that has a larger round root than some other types.It has sweet firm white flesh that is very delicious in soups, stews, casseroles and especially prized when baked.
