What are the pros? I love everything about these

Review:

I have never grown turnips before this spring. They look pretty and I now have lots of space so I decided to grow them. I dropped the seeds in the ground and watered them once. We've had an unusually dry spring yet it didn't seem to bother these guys one bit! They are by far the easiest thing I've every grown. I plan to let a couple go to seed so I have lots to plant again.

What are the pros? Germination rate, resilience

What are the cons? Prone to insects

Review:

Grew a row of about 60 specimen, all did well, some were massive (some were the size of my fist, and I have huge hands), few hardened and became woody. The grubs in the soil loved these sweet veggies too, chewed about 50% up pretty good. Handled the Alaskan summer with ease. Finished out in about 75 days.

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.
