Possibly an early commercial variety in New Zealand, if not then it is an older New Zealand heritage variety, kept alive in the South Island in recent years, passed to Koanga Institute by Henry Harrington. It is extremely rare and unavailable elsewhere as far as we know. It’s an easy to grow, classic looking parsnip that tastes great. Grows well all over New Zealand.
