Q.When Do I Pick Parsnips

ncw added on May 14, 2011 | Answered

I planted parsnips last spring and did not pick them in the fall. Now the tops are about 2 feet tall. Do I wait till fall or pick now?

You can pick them now. You may find that they are a little woody, though. If you wait till fall, they will go to seed and the roots will not be very good for eating.
