Melbourne White Skin Parnsip is an Australian Heirloom variety that produces long white roots.  It is a nutritious vegetable that has a sweet nutty flavour, and is delicious in stews, steamed, baked and added to soups.

The root flavour will become sweeter after exposure to frost, or left in the ground over cooler weather. Parsnips will yield heavily in well prepared loose friable soil.

In cool areas sow in Spring and early Summer for harvest in Autumn. In warm areas sow early Autumn, for harvest in Spring. Germination in approx. 14-28 days - it can be slow in very cold soils, preferred germination temperature is 10 - 21°C.  Grow in full sun.  Maturity approx. 90 - 130 days.
