Tokyo Market Turnip Seeds (Organic)

Japan's Tasty Gem

Tokyo Market Turnip, a member of the Brassica rapa subspecies, is a highly-regarded heirloom turnip variety cherished for its mild and sweet flavor profile. Originating in Japan, it has a rich history of cultivation and culinary tradition.

This turnip is characterized by its petite, round roots, typically measuring 1 to 2 inches in diameter. The smooth, white skin gives it a pristine appearance, making it visually appealing both in the garden and on the plate. Its tender flesh offers a delightful crispness when eaten fresh and becomes even sweeter and more tender when cooked.

Cultivating Tokyo Market Turnip is straightforward but requires attention to specific conditions. These turnips thrive in well-drained soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Sow the seeds thinly in early spring or late summer, as they prefer cooler temperatures. Keep the soil consistently moist during germination, and thin the seedlings to allow room for proper root development. Harvest the turnips when they reach the desired size, usually within 30 to 45 days after planting.

Tokyo Market Turnip is celebrated for its versatility in various culinary applications, from fresh salads to cooked dishes. Its mild, sweet taste and aesthetic appeal make it a sought-after addition to both the garden and the kitchen, embodying the essence of traditional Japanese heirloom produce.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Turnips like loose, moderately fertile soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Water moderately. They prefer cool weather and grow best when grown quickly in 60-65°F daytime temperatures.

Planting & Growing: While seeds can be started indoors, they perform best when seeds are sown directly 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Sow every 2 weeks through mid-summer for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest a few greens when the plants are young and eat the rest when you harvest the roots at a length of 3"-4". The greens and roots are best eaten fresh, though both can be frozen. Store roots in cool, moist conditions.
