Description

An early to mature variety, slightly larger than standard type, Gladiator F1 has long wedge-shaped roots with smooth white skin. It is canker resistant making it ideal for exhibiting. The high quality roots have a deliciously sweet, earthy flavour. Parsnips become sweeter after a cold frost as freezing turns some of the starch into more sugar. An essential part of your roast dinner!

Sowing Advice

Sow March to May thinly direct into the growing site 2cm (¾"") deep in rows 45cm (18in) apart. Try to choose a stone free tilth growing site. Parsnips can take up to 8 weeks to germinate depending on soil temperatures. You are better to delay sowings if soils are wet and cold. Do not transplant seedlings. A s soon as seedlings appear, they should be gradually thinned until plants are 10cm (4in) apart. Hoe regularly , taking care not to damage the crown of the root.
