Parsnip Question

cresyd | Jul 30, 2012 04:10 AM

From my basic wikipedia search, I have learned that the parsnip is native to Eurasia and originated in the Mediterranean region (while not more specific, I would assume including Greece/Italy - but not sure). However, I am wondering where the parsnip is now mostly grown/used in the Eastern Hemisphere?

I've been in Jerusalem/the Mediterranean Middle East for a while, and have never encountered a parsnip (though I've enjoyed learning how to use parsely root which certainly looks similar). So the question to the Chowhounds is where are parsnips grown/used in Europe/Asia?
