The “Golden Ball” or “Orange Jelly” variety has been a mainstay of European turnips for over 150 years. This seed came to us from France where this old turnip is still cherished, written about and grown. It has a finer flavor than many of the white fleshed varieties as the yellow flesh is sweeter and milder. Lovely color.

Review:

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.

Review:

These are so amazing. Germinate rate is really good considering I bought the seeds in 2016 and planted fall 2018, Also, planted the end of October. All that said, the flavor is amazing. I am on Black land heavy clay, and these produced beautifully. Flavor is sweet, reminiscent of a parsnip (which I love, but cannot get to grow here). These are going to be a staple of my fall/winter garden from now on. Even the hubby, who hates turnips, loves these. Oh, and the greens are just as good.

What are the pros? Good fall garden crop

Review:

Planted in early August for fall, these matured quickly and provide sweet tasty turnips. Still have some out there now mid December and other than one or two pithy ones they are all still firm. They have not all developed at the same rate but that is good for picking them a few at a time throughout the fall/winter.

Review:

I actually ordered the seed for 2017 but didn't sow seeds until mid July 2018. Germination seemed to be 100% even then. Left 5" between plants and started harvesting after first heavy frost in mid-October. Even with a couple nights at 20 degrees F and with no protection foliage remained green. The flavor is great. I did see any insect damage on the roots. I did spray an organic deer repellent once on the plants after they germinated, just in case. I would recommend these turnips.

Review:

Zone 7A here. Planted soon after last frost. These things produce tons of greens. I've made quite a few salads just thinning them out. I tried my first two turnips yesterday. Raw they had a nice sweetness to them and were a little peppery. Sauteed they were fairly mild. We have had a handful of 90 degree days already, so I don't know how much that effected the flavor. Looking forward to planting these in the fall.
