Review:

We have grown these for several years. Each year they do well and produce a good amount of veggies for us. Bugs don't seem to bother them too much and they don't mind the weird up and down temperatures here. They taste great in stews as well as roasted in the oven. A good fall/winter veggie.

Review:

A family member gave me these seeds in 2015 ( they were from 2011), and I planted them in Central Texas in August. They grew steadily without much efforts on my part. I harvested beautiful and tasty roots in the last part of November.

Review:

Wow, I didn't plant these until March, but I started eating them in June. These made a really productive low intake rotation crop. I am going to plant them again later this fall so I can have more in the spring. They are large, delicious, and the greens are huge, tender and excelent in salad.

Review:

I'm growing these in the northern part of Michigan's lower peninsula, and so far I'm impressed! First I love rutabagas because I get the satisfaction of eating something like potatoes, with more flavor and nutrients, and fewer carbohydrates! These are doing well in my lightly amended (a little chicken manure and organic 5-4-4 fertilizer) sandy soil. I irrigate usually once every two to three days without rain, as the soil drains pretty fast, but it almost seems like the plants at the farthest reaches of the sprinkler may be doing better! The distinct purple tops are showing, and some of the tops are 3-4" already, double planted memorial day, thinned a week after germination, and thinned again (8-10" spacing) another two weeks later... I was even successful transplanting some that were too close, spreading them out for a nice solid row that sort of reminds me of kale. They can be mulched and left in the ground for winter storage, and you can even eat the leaves! My favorite tuber by far
