Great and versatile

23 August 2018
We like Turnips and decided to grow them for the first time this year. I had very good success with this variety, no pest pressure at all and the growth rate was amazing. We pick ours when about 8cm when still very tender. We julienne them with some Beetroot and make salad, Bake them with other vegetables or cook them in a stew, also the tops can be eaten or fed to the chickens.

Very impressed with how these grew. Planted in late-Feb / early-March, full sun, but well watered
