Like many root vegetables, parsnip does not transplant well and should always be sown direct. Plant 2-3 seeds ½” deep and 1-2” apart in very loose, well-tilled, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-7.0. Seeds germinate in 10-28 days, thinning out strongest starts to 6-9” apart in the garden. Parsnips grow best with some drought, becoming wider and longer in search of moisture.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003ch3\u003eHow to Harvest Harris Model Parsnip\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMost varieties of parsnip may be harvested about 100 days after sowing but, for sweetest flavor, allow parsnip to experience a frost or two before harvesting. Parsnips are ready to harvest once their foliage has died back, dried, and bowed over. Like carrots, parsnip can be safely removed from the ground with a gardening fork. If sowing in the fall for a spring harvest, cover parsnip seeds with a top layer of mulch and harvest crop once the ground thaws.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003ch3\u003eAbout Harris Model Parsnip Seeds\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eParsnips have 36mg Calcium and 71 mg phosphorous per 100gm.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eThe vitamin C level though is 17mg per 100gm which is almost 3 times the level of vitamin C in carrots.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eParsnips can be substituted for carrots in many recipes.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eYou can remove the skin and mash them like potatoes with a little butter.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eSome folks grate them into salads fresh, while others add them to stews and soups.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eThere are many ways to enjoy these tasty roots.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eDid you know that Parsnips over winter with no protection in most places and are even more tasty after a freeze!
