These parsnips spoiled my Christmas dinner. I just bought some more in case they were just a one off, but they were the same -- woody and had a very strong taste like they were old stock. I usually love roasted parsnips but these are extremely woody and stringy -- too tough for me to eat. They used to be OK but now...! Are they from a different supplier?
It doesn’t matter if there are skinny ones
People who complain about skinny parsnips need to be more educated - if they aren’t sold by supermarkets then they don’t get bought from the farmer and just ended up being wasted and ploughed back into the ground. Well done Tesco for selling parsnips regardless of size. They still taste the same, just change the way they are cut up!
You get what you pay for!
Sadly another case of, you get what you pay for. The most pathetic selection of skinny parsnips. Most were so small they were hardly worth peeling. So glad I ordered these the week before Christmas so I know not to take the risk for Christmas Day! I ordered online, so I guess you may have better luck if you can choose your own in store.

I’ve had some parsnips in my time, but there are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe the sheer joy I experienced when consuming these bad boys.
The sizes of these parsnips is a disgrace. The on line picture shows 7 in the pack. As there were 13 in the pack for the same weight this tells you how small they were. Once peeled and roasted they will look like fries with little taste!
Where are they from?
In end of Oct, where do they come from? No English from greenhouses? Poor show.

they had sweated in the bag before delivery and smelt awful and had to be thrown away
Great flavour and quality.
Great flavour, roast well, nice texture, not at all stringy!
Won;t be buying them like this again
Ridiculous sizes in the pack 1 was 10cm long and thinner than a pencil. The other 4 were bigger but not by much. once roasted there will be very little left.
