Details

This turnip was improved and reintroduced by breeder Frank Morton. Every part of this turnip is beautiful and tasty, revolutionizing what a turnip might be. The leafy tops are pink-ribbed and tender, the roots are bright magenta on the outside and white with pink streaks on the inside. When we first grew these turnips, we sliced them thinly and ate them raw. After hearing they are categorized as a "pickling" turnip, we tried that too, with excellent results. They are also delicious in a classic Japanese dish--roots seasoned and braised with the tops chopped and mixed in. Best grown in spring or in late summer for fall harvest. Stores well.

Spacing Between Rows 12 inches

Direct sow outdoors in early spring, 2-3 weeks before last frost, and anytime after (until mid-late summer). Space seeds about an inch apart in rows 12 inches apart. Thin sprouts to 2 inches apart and then, once they reach 3-4 inches tall, thin to 4-6 inches apart. Keep soil moist and cover with light-weight row cover to protect from flea beetle damage. Turnips prefer rich, fertile, well-drained soil and plenty of water. Harvest when roots are young, about 3-4 inches in diameter. Eat immediately, or cut the leaves off and store the roots.
