Product description

Seed Savers Exchange - The slightly sweet and shapely roots of this historic variety make it ideal for adding to your roasted vegetable mix. Its straight roots bear wide shoulders, a fairly acute taper, and smooth skin with little to no splitting. The variety was included in the 1865 edition of Fearing Burr’s classic tome Field and Garden Vegetables of America. Burr described it as “so recently brought to notice and so strongly commended, is of English origin, and was obtained from the wild Parsnip by Prof. Buckman, of the Royal Agricultural College at Cirencester.” This variety, acquired by Seed Savers Exchange from member Dennis Sherwood, is a great addition to any garden..
