What are the pros? Strong from the get-go!
What are the cons? Cutworms love
Due to my Scottish decent, I have always had a high fondness for a good turnip. I ordered these as I do much French cooking and am a chef, and could not be more elated with the turnout. Seeds germinated quickly in unusually extreme early spring weather, and never faltered. Able to go for several days without watering, and able to tolerate high 90s to low teens as far as weather is concerned. Have been harvesting the greens for a bit, which are extremely robust, mild and disease resistant. Finally started actually harvesting the roots and OH MY GOSH. Extremely pungent and spicy nose, but incredibly mild, creamy, and rich flavor. Sauteed with fresh garlic in a touch of salted butter the flavor is UNRIVALED and could easily be confused for a perfectly roasted Yukon gold potato. Adapts well to American, Hispanic, Asian and Northern European recipes. If you are not growing and gorging on these babies you are depriving yourself of unadulterated joy.
