Kings Seeds - Parsnip Tender and True Tender and True is one of the most popular varieties of parnsip and is very much the gardeners favourite. It has a very uniform shape with pale coloured skin containing an outstanding flavour, making this a good choice for the show bench. Parsnip is a particularly British vegetable because of its winter hardiness. Thankfully it is now reviving as a popular choice thanks to more imaginative uses in cooking. Roast with your Sunday joint or par-boil, roll in flour and Parmesan cheese and roast, delicious! Kings Seeds Pictorial Pack with full sowing instructions.
