Review:

These are delicious. They have cores which are not tough, so don't cut them out. We start them when the daffodils bloom. You can presprout them on damp paper towels on a plate covered with plastic wrap. That helps with germination. Sprout for only 3-4 days because the roots are fragile and come out quickly. Plant out 2" apart in rows 8" apart; thin to 4" apart. Water every day until they all come up. We begin harvesting these for Thanksgiving dinner. They get sweeter as the weather gets colder. We do not mulch and they keep in the garden all winter (gets down to -5 degrees F here). Make sure you harvest all of them before the end of March. We peel them, cut them into 1" chunks, and roast them in the oven with a little salt and coconut oil. They are delicious. We will grow these again and again. We never seem to have enough.
