Harris Model Parsnip Growth Habits:

Parsnips may not grow straight, unless you plant them in sandy, loamy soil or peat soil. Direct seed open-pollinated Harris Model Parsnip seeds 1/2” deep, approximately 1” apart, thinning to 2-3”. The seeds require constant moisture until germination occurs in about 3 weeks. After summer, when the parsnips are mature, you can leave them in the soil and harvest them when necessary. They get sweeter the longer they stay in the ground, especially after a light frost.


Various Uses for Harris Model Parsnip:

Usually, to get their optimal sweet flavor, parsnips grown from heirloom Harris Model seeds are cooked instead of eaten raw. Like potatoes or carrots, they are wonderful roasted, sautéed, mashed or pureed. You can store parsnips in a root cellar, or can or freeze them.


Harris Model Parsnip Benefits:

Like all parsnips, those grown from non-GMO Harris Model seeds are a great source of vitamins A and C. These 2 vitamins act as antioxidants, which help counter the damage that free radicals do to cells. They are also believed to help prevent diabetes, heart disease and cancer. This ancient root vegetable also contains the mineral potassium, which helps with heart function and reduces the risk of kidney stones. Finally, parsnips have a lot of fiber. This helps minimize the chances of suffering from hemorrhoids, ulcers, and diverticulitis. Fiber also helps reduce cholesterol and regulate blood sugar levels.


Fun Fact:

Although not common, you may get a rash from touching the foliage of the plant. If this occurs, wear long sleeve and gloves when handling parsnip.
