Planting & Care

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.
