MrF PARSNIP Gladiator F1 - Seeds

Large, canker resistant roots.Canker-resistant, this is an early to mature variety with deliciously flavoured smooth white roots.A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.Recommended by Mike Thurlow (organic vegetable and fruit grower) in BBC Gardeners World Magazine (January 2015 edition): “The first parsnip especially bred to be canker resistant. Even after the wettest of summers it still produces the cleanest, sweetest, medium-sized white roots.”Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly February-May, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (˝") deep, directly into finely-prepared, light, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 40cm (16") between rows. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Seedlings usually appear in 14-32 days. Thin plants to 20cm (8") apart. Replace any dislodged soil. Water well until plants are established. Leave roots in the ground until required, as they improve after exposure to autumn frosts. Harvest: October-February.
