Review:

Planted these on March 24, 2019; sprouted after 4 days; 1st harvest 41 days after planting; full harvest at 50 days. Most were about the size of a baseball. Good clean taste with a little spicy kick. The germination rate was excellent. I definitely could have planted fewer seeds as I had to thin so many out. Typical plant was about 2 feet high, providing a lot of greens. Will probably plant these again at end of summer.

What are the pros? Taste, ease of growing

Review:

We love turnip greens, can't cook a pot big enough for the family. This is the turnip we grow for greens. Seven top just doesn't have the same turnip green taste. The turnip is tasty also, harvest when it's about the size of a baseball. It's gets really big here, the big ones we leave and just harvest the greens. Highly recommended.

Review:

This is the turnip I grew up with. Sow the seeds lightly in the fall. Harvest the greens as they grow, eventually thinning out the plants to where they are about 3 to 4 inches apart, maybe even more if you want huge bulbs. Let the bulbs develop during the cold weather. It got down into the 20's for about a week in this area, and after it was over, I was pulling up some nice softball sized bulbs. I still have most of my turnips in the ground waiting to be pulled. The bulbs are nice and tender when boiled.

Review:

I've grown this variety before because it does good for my area. This is the first time I sourced my seed from Baker Creek. Excellent germination rate! It seemed as though every single seed I planted came up! My greens are about 3-4 inches tall so far and are still growing wonderfully despite that our Texas temperature still reaches the low nineties. The only trouble that I've always had with this variety is that I never get any big bulbs like it shows on the picture. Goodness, if I were to ever pull one up that big, I would probably faint! Mine usually max out at about the size of a quarter. However, where I live, I have hard-as-rock clay soil that I call rubbish. Any veggie I grow at my house must either be planted in a pot or my raised bed. If I had sandy soil, I'm sure my stuff would do better. Anyway, the greens on this variety are great. We freeze them to have later throughout the year. They are very easy to grow, and I plan to continue growing these!
