  • Although many of us fondly associate parsnips with a rustic, home-cooked meal, there is also a wild variety that is increasingly causing problems as a weed in North America. The cultivated variety is a subspecies of Pastinaca sativa ( Pastinaca sativa ssp. sativa ) and contains lower amounts of the problematic furanocoumarins than the wild version. Wild parsnip ( Pastinaca sativa L. PAVSA) is an introduced facultative biennial from Eurasia. It has spread throughout the United States and… CONTINUE READING
