When are parsnips in season?
Parsnips are a root vegetable that are typically in season in the UK from late autumn to early spring, with the peak season being from November to February. They are usually planted in late spring and harvested in late fall, when the soil is cool and the days are shorter. Parsnips are hardy vegetables that can survive light frost, but they are best harvested before the first heavy frost.
Parsnips can be stored in a cool, dry place for several months, which makes them a good option for using throughout the winter when other fresh produce may be less available.
It's important to note that the specific harvest time for parsnips can vary depending on the weather and growing conditions. For example, a milder winter can cause parsnips to be ready for harvest earlier than usual.
