Parnips are a great winter staple crop. Though they are related to carrots, they are a starchy vegetable like potatoes, and have a high calorie yield. In California, I prefer to plant them in the fall (Sept.) and harvest in mid-winter, when they have a sweet mild flavor. They can also be sown during winter and harvested in spring, but they can have a stronger flavor if they ripen during warm weather.
This grex is a cross-pollination between several parsnip varieties, but I plan to continue to add more diversity. I will ultimately be selecting for shorter, thicker roots that are easy to harvest from clay soil.
