Parsnip – Countess


High yielding with good disease tolerance
This variety of parsnip has good disease tolerance and is easy to grow. The parsnips form a smooth skin and are very uniform in shape. Growing from our plug plants is very easy – just pop them in your veg plot when your plants arrive – the parsnip plants come in biodegradable pots so you can just plant them as they come. This helps to minimise root disturbance. A complete growing guide is provided.

Number of plants: 10 plug plants

Variety: Countess (organic)

In the kitchen: Delicious roasted with some honey. Alternatively, try mashing your parsnips with other root vegetables. Parsnips can also be thinly sliced and fried to make delicious chips or crisps.


Delivery Info: Please see FAQs for up-to-date delivery info.

Planting advice: Plant plugs 30cm apart in well dug soil.

Harvesting: Ideally after the first frosts for a better flavour.

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.

We will keep you posted
