Parsnip - "Lancer"

Parsnips are commonly grown in Europe and in many northern areas of the United States, but are not a popular garden vegetable in the South. They are grown for their delicate tasting, carrot-like roots which can grow up to 15 inches long and 3 to 4 inches across at the top.

We chose the Lancer variety because the long, slender, smooth roots are very sweet. We'll plant them in the late summer as the cooler temps of the fall during their maturation make them extra sweet. They are delicious with butter and brown sugar in the oven, like a sweet potato!
