Radish, Rutabagas, Turnips

RADISH: (Rhaphanus sativus) Cabbage relatives that come originally from Asia. Radishes are at their best in cooler weather, but will take more heat than most cabbage relatives. Salad-types are quick to mature, often in 28-35 days, and should be succession planted every 2-3 weeks from early spring well into fall, to keep as continual harvest. Winter or storage types take longer (60-75 days), and should be planted in mid to late summer for harvest in the fall. These are used and stored similar to the more familiar turnip. All types are grown in ordinary garden soil, worked deeply enough to accommodate whatever roots are expected. (Daikon types may grow a foot or more in length!) Adequate moisture, correct thinning and weed control are all that’s required to grow this easy crop! RUTABAGA: (Brassica napus) Cabbage relative grown for its roots, which are similar to turnips but larger, sweeter and milder. Requires a longer season, 90-120 days, but can tolerate cool temperatures as it matures, and is at its best harvested in late autumn. Sow about 90 days prior to expected fall frost, in rich, deeply worked soil of average fertility. Thin to about 8-12 inches apart, control weeds and keep moist. The leaves of some varieties make passable greens when harvested young. TURNIP: (Brassica napus) Cabbage relative grown for its roots, which are similar to turnips but larger, sweeter and milder.
