Peruvian Parsnip, Arracacia xanthorrhiza is an easy-to-grow short-living perennial vegetable, delicious in taste and packed with important nutrients like vitamin C, B3, Iron, Magnesium, and others. Peruvian parsnip will happily grow in a partly shaded position. The root has a nutty and sweetish taste. In my opinion, it tastes similar or like a mix between parsnip and celeriac and can be used the same way as those vegetables.
