Parsnip Gladiator F1
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!
