70 days (Also known as Blanche de Kuttingen) Heritage variety virtually unknown on this side of the Atlantic, but was long considered a delicacy in Europe. Originated centuries ago, in the Aargau region of Switzerland. Texture is a bit firmer than common types, but not woody. Mild-flavored and a bit less sweet, more savory, than other varieties, with hints of celery and parsnip. Conical white roots are fairly short and thick, making these a good choice in less-than-ideal soils. The roots get large enough to make good livestock fodder, and makes a great keeper.
