Review:

I bought these seeds from Baker Creek this year and sowed them on June 30. They began to sprout on Independence Day (only four days later!) and well over 90% had sprouted within a week to ten days. Never in my life had I eaten a rutabaga until I discovered and learned to make Cornish pasties this past spring. I tried rutabagas from a few local supermarkets. Some were better than others, but none blew me away. The taste reminded me more of cabbage than turnip -- not what I had hoped for. Then there's the adventure in cutting them... they were HARD. VERY hard. I pulled my very first homegrown American Purple Top from the ground on the 100th day after sowing the seed. It was firm, but not hard to cut. The flavor was sublime! This, BEFORE our first frost, which is said to improve them. I can hardly wait to see what a few more weeks of cool weather and some light frosts do for them! I am extremely pleased. I will definitely plant more next year. I am right on the border of 5a and 5b; some years the weather's more like one, some years it's more like the other. We see extremes from both.

Review:

We have grown these for several years. Each year they do well and produce a good amount of veggies for us. Bugs don't seem to bother them too much and they don't mind the weird up and down temperatures here. They taste great in stews as well as roasted in the oven. A good fall/winter veggie.

Review:

A family member gave me these seeds in 2015 ( they were from 2011), and I planted them in Central Texas in August. They grew steadily without much efforts on my part. I harvested beautiful and tasty roots in the last part of November.

Review:

Wow, I didn't plant these until March, but I started eating them in June. These made a really productive low intake rotation crop. I am going to plant them again later this fall so I can have more in the spring. They are large, delicious, and the greens are huge, tender and excelent in salad.
