Parsnip Project

Upper Valley Seed Savers

Seed Saving Project *


 

Date/Season: 2016/2017 growing season     

 

Crop / Species: Parsnip/Pastinaca sativa

 

Variety: Guernsey, Tender and True, Turga     

 

Project Type: Variety Trial

 

 

Project Goals: Guernsey has a rather woody core, this trial aims to determine whether the two other varieties are more tender. I will also observe comparative shapes, growth habits, hardiness, storage quality, and general flavor. All three varieties will be grown in the first year. I will dig the roots at the end of the season, choosing the best for possible seed production and returning those to the garden for overwintering. Back-up roots will be stored in the greenhouse. In the second year I will grow either Tender and True or Turga for seed, seeking an isolation garden for the second variety to assess seed production.
