Review:

I just pulled four of these out of my raised garden bed yesterday, and they were firm, fragrant, and incredibly sweet. I grew them specifically because I love turnips, but my husband hates them, so I was hoping to find a good compromise. These seem like they will fit the bill! They grew, no, they THRIVED despite being grossly overcrowded (I let my 3-year-olds plant them via a handful of seeds and "here you go"). The greens were lush and delicious, and the roots, when pulled were delicious even raw. They lacked the typical "spiciness" I notice in the usual purple-top variety, reminding me most closely of jicama root. Also: they germinated extremely quickly and sprung up in spite of being walked on (again, 3-year-olds helping out), overwatered, forgotten about and not watered, never thinned, and being incessantly poked at by yours truly, impatient for something I could pick. All in all, 5-star product. These will be grown in my garden every fall, without a doubt.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I have grown this variety for several years, for fermenting (along with a little beet and red onion). It is my favorite ferment. It is gorgeous, very productive, and so happy to be in the garden here in the San Joaquin Valley. One of my all-time favorites, and I've been gardening for more than 50 years. It prefers rainfall to irrigation for germination. I usually plant in late September or early October, once the soil has sufficiently cooled. Could be planted in the spring, but spring here so short, I think they are sweeter grown over the winter.

Review:

I decided to try this turnip, although I hate turnips from the store. I am so glad I did! This variety is great. It absorbs the flavor of everything around it. My daughter thought she was eating a potato. We will grow this every year.

Review:

This is the best turnip I've ever grown. It looks handsome and has a taste both richer and milder than most turnips. And the greens are impressive too! I ignored the advice on the seek packet to grow it as a fall crop and planted it in March. At least here in Virginia (admittedly with an unsually cool and wet spring), it did great as a spring crop.

Review:

Grew larger than purple top turnips, sometimes twice the size, and tasted better -- a mild-tasting, straw-colored globe. I'll be growing more next year for sure.
