Parsnips on Alabama Gulf Coast

JWW_1(8B / 9A Foley, AL)April 7, 2013

I love parsnips but not sure how they grow in my area. I have read various sources that say they are best after a heavy frost. We do not get heavy frosts along the gulf coast in Alabama. So I have two questions:

If I grow parsnips, will I get a good quality crop, or will the root not develop good flavor?

If y'all are having success in this growing area with parsnips, when do you plant and when do you harvest?

Try planting them in the fall, spring is too hot. I've never grown them because they don't do too well in the heat.
