Baby parsnips are harvested at the baby stage of growth and resemble a white carrot. The parsnip is more irregular in shape than its cousin, the carrot. Baby parsnips have a pale yellow skin and a creamy flesh with a firm texture. Usually marketed without its leaves, the green leaves closely resemble those of celery, another relative. The flavor of Baby parsnips is sweet and nutty.
Baby parsnips are available late fall through spring.
Parsnips are botanically known as Pastinaca sativa, and are part of the Apiaceae family. The long, pale roots are closely related to carrots, parsley and dill. Parsnips have become a common garden crop in cold-climate regions because the root needs a longer growing period to develop its sweet flavor. There are three commercial varieties of Parsnip root, All American, Hollow Crown Improved and Harris Model, all of which are fairly common in taste and appearance.
