What are the pros? Easy to grow, grows fast
What are the cons? Didn't like the greens
I have been able to keep growing this through the summer since it has been cool. It's my first year starting a veggie garden so my soil isn't great with some clumps of clay left. It has been a "cold" wet summer and when my other plants are struggling the turnips are doing pretty good! I like this turnip oven roasted but raw it is still too strong/bitter for me. Little of the strong/bitter flavor is left after roasting and I then enjoy it. I tried frying the greens and they were a little too thick and fuzzy for me although, I confess if I had picked smaller ones they probably would taste better than a huge mature turnip leaf. All in all, I definitely would recommend since even though bugs have eaten holes in the leaves, they still grow strong.
