Central Texas zone 8, TX
What are the pros? easy to grow, great product
What are the cons? none
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.
