What are the pros? easy to grow, great product

What are the cons? none

Review:

I've had nothing but success with this variety. I've had the most luck planting turnips as a fall crop in my area due to the harsh weather this region is prone to in late winter and early spring. However, I still have turnips in the spring despite characteristically unfavorable conditions. Spring crop typically produces a little smaller root as the growing window is usually shorter in the spring than in the fall; but they taste better that way so double plus good Winston! As for winter hardiness, they are pretty tough. They have to come out of the ground before a sleet storm, which my area is prone to, but other than freezing rain this strain is pretty winter hardy. Seed them in succession for best results. I start sowing them directly into the garden in September and continue thru February pending winter conditions. This a a great staple but not the best keeper so plant small and often for at home use.

What are the pros? Tasty

What are the cons? could be more uniform

Review:

Love these, but have a hard time getting uniform roots. A fair amount never fully develop. Turnips, potatoes, carrots, onions, and a beef roast slow cooked with some fresh thyme and sage makes a great meal.

Review:

I never thought I'd be so excited about growing turnips! These are so beautiful! The turnips are large and delicious - crisp and sweet on the inside and slightly spicy on the skin. The greens are over 2' tall. Planted these at the beginning of September, picked the first ones in early November, and still have some overwintering. Frost has not bothered the plants.

Review:

These classic looking turnips were very easy to grow - first time I grew turnips - now a regular in my fall/winter garden. Easy to grow and able to leave them in the ground over winter, even during periods of freeze, until I wanted to pick some to use - mashed, or cubed in vegetable soup. I grow 3 types of turnips - but I consider these purple tops to be the classic vision of a turnip.
