Gardeners' World - - What To Do Now -

I like my parsnips to be about a foot long and a cou­ple of inches at the top and no big­ger, as the larger they grow the more likely they are to de­velop a woody, ined­i­ble core. Frost helps to con­vert starches into su­gars and in­ten­si­fies the char­ac­ter­is­tic sweet­ness, so they’re best eaten after a lit­tle cold weather.

Dig up your parsnips be­fore they grow too large, to har­vest the most tasty crop
