Parsnips are a root vegetable that are similar to carrots and share the same sweetness qualities that carrots do. Parsnips are a popular vegetable in the UK, predominantly with older generations but lately, there has been a growing popularity across all age groups. Planting parsnip seeds is straightforward and growing parsnips in UK soil is also productive and rewarding because they grow readily. Parsnip seeds grow underground, and providing they are planted in good soil, remain pest free during their growth. They are also compact growers, not needing much space to develop fully.
