|Parsnip Seeds - 'Hollow Crown' Be the first one to write a review|
Vegetable Description: A close relative of parsley root and carrots, the parsnip most likely originated in Europe, where it grew wild for centuries. The ruling class claimed this vegetable for their own, prizing it for its natural sweetness; desserts often featured the parsnip, and at one time it provided a source of sugar. Americans first experienced the parsnip in the 16th century, but it has remained primarily a European favorite. Hollow Crown parsnips came onto the gardening scene in 1879, when they were first offered in D. M. Ferry's seed catalog.
