Are parsnip tops/greens edible?

Jen76 | Mar 27, 2010 04:35 PM

I planted parsnips last fall (live in Phoenix so our growing season is somewhat reversed) and just pulled 3 out of the garden for my pot of beans. The tops are bushy and lush. Are they edible?I'm finding conflicting answers on a Google search. Some sites say "no way" and that they are toxic. Some sites say all parts of the parsnip plant are edible, but no further info is given. Does anyone know for sure? If so, has anyone had success cooking them?

Also, what about carrot tops?
