The Giant Trentino Ancient cabbage Turnip is one of the marvels of the vegetable world.  Joe discovered this amazing vegetable that has all but been forgotten at a rare vegetable seed exchange in northern Italy.  The editor of a regional countryfolk association for the Northern Italian region of Trentino.  According to Plinio Pancirolli of the organization, the "Naone Rosse Trentino Antica" has been raised in the area of Trentino for over 2000 continuous years and there is the historical records to substantiate that information!  Plinio and his colleagues claim that the cabbage turnip , actually Brassica oleracea, and not Brassica napa (Turnip) is so sweet and delicious that it is eaten raw just like a splendid Kohlrabi! The Giant Cabbage turnip is something of a wonder and will grow anywhere kale and cabbage will grow!  Try some and continue this ancient Italian tradition!

What are the pros? Grows like a weed

What are the cons? none

Review:

A very interesting vegetable. It is not a cabbage, not a turnip, not a kohlrabi, but apparently an ancient form of rutabaga--in Italian "navone" or "rapa svedese", i.e., Swedish turnip (Swede) as the British say. I live in the desert, and any plant that can take this miserable climate so easily gets my vote. If it gets anywhere near the size in the pictures, it'll be great for canning. I've also ordered seed of the giallo form.

Review:

I forgot what I had planted I forgot to put the word turnip on the stake it just said cabbage. It was not till just a few minutes ago while ordering for this season that I realized it was what it was supposed to be, and they are huge roots. they taste like turnips for sure.I tasted the root of one and was thinking I got turnip seeds instead of cabbage like the stake was posted as. oh well

Review:

Planted in fall 2015, letting go to seed for spring. I planted in raise bed of 1 year old aged wood mulch, Absolutely huge! Planted another group in an amended bed of compost, average size root, not large. I think very lose soil is the trick for large roots. Aged wood chips seem to be the trick for me. This plant didn't seem to mind heat of August and September. Its a fun plant to grow.

What are the pros? Interesting looking plant

What are the cons? Turnip-y smell of the root

Review:

I bought these seed because they sounded fun and different, something to make the garden more interesting. They germinated and grew well. They HATE to be shaded so give them a really sunny spot away from the Jerusalem artichokes. This spring/summer has been almost nonstop rain in southwest Missouri, but these guys grew anyway. They did get very large but not as large as the photo, because the rain caused a couple of them to begin to rot. I did manage to save one of the three I had growing (plan on replanting in the fall). The good one smells like a turnip and has nice, firm white flesh. I don't like eating turnips, so it will be interesting to try this big chubby root. Despite the excessive rain causing rot and a nearly constant battle with cabbage worms on the big, palm tree shaped tops, these were a fun conversation piece in the garden and I will plant them again.

Review:

Bought my seed from baker creek. I bought them a bit late for spring planting, but I planted them anyway. I have a small backyard garden, so I don't have much room. In 8 weeks I had to start harvesting them so they would not overcrowd my carrots. I live in zone 5b and roots/stems were about 1/3 the size of the ones pictured. I hope to let my remaining 3 get larger but they are so tasty I my not be able to resist. Raw they taste like over wintered turnip/ kohlrabi. Cooked they have a very sweet peppery cabbage flavor. I will definitely grow more. The only drawback is the huge leaves they spread to about 30" each. I can't wait for fall planting. I also will overwinter some and update my review.
