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.
