Dagger has very slender roots of a narrow obtriangular shape. Smooth white skin with high crowns make for relatively easy cleaning. Sown at higher densities Dagger will produce large quantities of regular uniform roots ideal for the pre-pack market demands. Sown at lower densities it will fill well down the root producing heavy yields. In terms of root shape, Dagger could be described as being the parsnip nearest to looking like a large traditional carrot. Ideally sown in the spring and lifted before the turn of the year.
