Description

Rutabaga - Joan - Brassica napus

Hardy Biennial Also called "swedes", short for Swedish Turnip. This refined "American Purple Top" rutabaga has smooth, round roots and dense yellow flesh that is rather hard and crispy with a sweet, mild flavor that improves after frost. Joan is highly uniform and has good field resistance to club root.

Did You Know? Rutabagas originated in the middle ages from a cross between a turnip and a wild cabbage. The name rutabaga comes from Swedish word "rotabagge", meaning "round root".

Soil & Water: Enrich soil well with mature compost. Add lime to acid soils, and supply ample phosphorus and potassium. Water moderately through maturity, allowing soil surface to dry between watering. Mulch to conserve water and control weeds.

Planting & Growing: Sow the seed directly in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked and/or in summer for harvest in the late fall.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest roots after two good frosts and continue through the winter. Rutabagas become sweeter with the cold.
