This seed was donated to the Seed Library by Paul from Veritas Farms where farmer Jessica was helping to save seeds. Paul had received the seeds from a salty dog on Cape Cod who swore he lived solely off these "turnips" and onions every winter. We think it looks more like a rutabaga! When it was going to seed on our farm the masses of yellow flowers were taller than Ken. Whether turnip, rutabaga, or Turnipabaga, it's large, stores well, and deserves to live on as a winter staple for any homestead.
This first photo shows the overwintered plants. They looked ragged at first, but perked up soon after we planted them. The second pic shows the same plants flowering later in the season. They are about 5-6 feet tall!
