(500 seeds)

$3.95

Turnip greens are soul food

Although we tend to think of turnips as being root vegetables, their leaves (turnip greens) are both delicious and nutritious when prepared according to traditional recipes. Seven Top turnips don't produce a tender root unless you harvest them very young, but the foliage is the crop you're aiming for. Sautee them with olive oil and onion with a little soy sauce or simmer them in a stew with meat or chicken. Seven top will produce all the yummy greens you need.

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.
