Description

Turnip - Golden Globe - Brassica rapa (Rapifera group)

Biennial Yellow 3"-4" diameter globes are sweet with tender with mild deep golden-yellow flesh. Medium-sized cut leaf tops and this turnip keeps well. Good to cook for mashing, tastes more like a rutabaga than an early summer turnip, excellent for home gardens.

Did You Know? Turnip greens are an excellent source of many vitamins including vitamins A, C, E, B6, folate and the minerals calcium, copper and manganese.

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 60-65F daytime temperatures. Hot weather causes woody growth.

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 midsummer 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.
