VIKING

« Back

An early maturing hybrid parsnip, VIKING is well suited to the pre-pack market due to the high uniformity and smaller root size. The long slender roots ensure a more even distribution of the flesh from the crown to the tip enabling greater use for the consumer. The smaller roots allows several to a bag and VIKING present well when prepacked due to the white colour. The whiteness of the root is comparable to current OP market standards such as VIP. VIKING has excellent tolerance to root discolouration post harvest.
