130 day. With tender, white roots, and a nice mild flavor, American is an excellent parsnip. It has fairly long roots, which are especially sweet when harvested in the fall.
Minimum of 150 seeds per packet.
Planting Depth: 1/2 inch
Plant Spacing: 3-4 inches
Row Spacing: 12-18 inches
These can be tough to grow and seeds will only last 1 year if kept in a cool, dry, dark place. We recommend keeping them in a ziplock or mylar in the fridge.
Direct seed 1/2 to 1 inch apart in well prepared beds. Parsnips are slow to germinate and need to kept moist.
