While you might find yourself waiting for the good thing in life, white egg turnips are among the fastest and easiest crops you can grow and enjoy. The egg-shaped, white roots are perfect for those winter stews and soups, and aren't as sharp-tasting as some of the more well-known turnip varieties. The texture is also excellent, with a fine grain that makes for tender eating and for soaking up the hearty flavours of a slow-cooked dish.

  • Growing Information

    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.
