This magnificent, mild and delicious turnip is two-toned with a lovely, violet-colored top and brilliant white base. The long, slender roots can grow from 1’ to 2’ in length. These also taste amazing pickled, raw, or cooked. Lord Gamou Sadahide, builder of the Otowa castle in Japan, found this turnip in Hino around 1470. The turnips are typically eaten pickled, which is called Sakura Zuke (Cherry Blossom Pickles). Because of the pale pink color and flavor, the pickled turnip was gifted to Emperor Kashiwabara (1500-1526) for naming. The Emperor then wrote a poem about the pickles in return. Noguchi Seed Company says the seed was spread by a seed seller Genbei in the Hokan era (1751-1763).

What are the pros? pretty, nice looking greens

What are the cons? cabbage whites love them

Review:

Grew it in the late summer/fall, it matured in the same amount of time as hakurei (45 days?). A nice addition to the market booth. The greens have a nice deep green color with a beautiful purple midrib. flavor not as refined (sweet and mild) as hakurei and other white salad turnips, but very good otherwise. Ground needs to be worked deep to get long straight roots.

What are the pros? Spicy notes, quick to mature

What are the cons? Not a great spring crop.

Review:

Seeds germinated well and growth rate strong. Soil needs to be well worked. Flesh tender and can be eaten raw. They did not like our hot NC Spring, and the final size was less than 6 inches. Likely a better Fall crop for areas with a shorter Spring. Reminded me of a mild radish; not distinctive enough to plant again.
