TURNIP – Purple Top

(300 seeds)

$3.95

(5 customer reviews)

The best turnip for soups and stews

A white globe blushing purple at the top is just what you’d expect from a turnip, and Purple Top fits that image perfectly. Few veggies could be as rewarding and as easy to grow, so this is a great choice for veggie gardening beginners. Don’t throw away the leaves! The young ones are lovely when lightly sautéed, and they’re packed with healthful nutrients. As for the roots, your soups and stews just found the ideal traditional ingredient – eat and enjoy.

How to Sow

With root veggies such as turnips, soil preparation is the key to an attractive shape. Clear away stones and compost well for good drainage. Sow your seed 5 to 10mm deep and water well. When the soil surface begins to dry, water again. After germination, reduce watering.

How to Harvest

Turnips grow fast! You can start picking greens at two weeks, and after a month, your turnip roots should be big enough to harvest. They will last for a couple of weeks in the fridge if not eaten immediately, and they’re good for freezing after blanching with hot water.
