Purple Top White Globe Turnip Seeds

This turnip variety is grown for its mild flavor, crisp roots, and its greens. Roots are round and smooth with purple and white beneath. Flavor is best in cool weather and when no more than about 3" (7.5 cm.) across. Use roots raw in salads and dips, or cooked. Prepare greens by steaming. Non-genetically engineered seeds.

For best flavor, time so plants develop during cool weather. Plants are frost tolerant. Direct sow seed in early spring (cover 1/4") and again in late summer/early fall (cover 1/2"). Water regularly and fertilize when 4" (10 cm.) tall. Thinning is a must for all root crops. Try snipping the tops of unwanted plants, as this action will not disturb the root turnips left to mature. Use roots between 2"-3" (5-7.5 cm.) in diameter.

Harvest: Pick tender leaves as needed. Pull roots between 2"-3" (5-7.5 cm.) in diameter.

Nutrition: Greens are high in vitamins A and C. Roots supply some vitamin C. Both supply minerals.
