This 50 day white turnip is a traditional vegetable of Japan and listed among the illustrious group of Dento Yasai, or traditional cultural vegetables of Japan. Father of forest gardening, Masanobu Fukuoka, grew this variety as a wild understory crop. With a reluctance to bolt or become pithy, this popular type has an incredible sweet taste and rich flavor. The roots are nice and smooth with crisp, white flesh of excellent quality. Can be planted in early spring or late summer, into fall, and enjoyed all year long! The crunchy, juicy roots are enjoyed fresh or pickled.

What are the pros? Vigorous to a fault

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I planted seeds in a rail planter with mixture of compost and manure on 8/11. I companion planted with some onions-why not? Most emerged but a squirrel decided to bury acorns in the planter and displaced many of the seedlings. I replanted as many as I could. 6 have survived. That being said, those 6 have thrived! I do occasionally feed with water soluble fertilizer but pretty sparingly. The planter does not receive much direct sun even in winter but this variety has continued to thrive despite it. They bulb readily and grow vigorously. They have survived temperatures as low as 20 and rebounded nicely. In fact, they barely respond to 24 degrees with ice. Heavy rain and multiple consecutive days of steady rain haven't negatively affected them at all. I usually feed after large rain episodes to replenish nutrients I feel may be leached out. Other than that they are pretty much neglected. I harvested one today the 29th. It's about 2.5" in diameter with large healthy leaves.

Review:

I haven't yet tried the root, but the greens are delicious! I have kept them growing for six or so months just for the leaves, and they haven't gone to seed, yet!

Review:

I'm in 9a and these turnips have been wonderful to grow over the fall/winter--so far I've harvested one batch and should have another ready by mid-February. I more-or-less neglected them but they still grew fairly quickly with a 100% germination rate, and each ended up picture-perfect and way larger than I had anticipated. For the purpose of making savory pancakes, these are wonderfully rich and flavorful.

Review:

I planted these late January here in Phoenix AZ. The weather was cool and days were short, so they did not grow that fast, and they did not mature in 45 days. They did, however keep growing, and at about 60 days I started to harvest them. At 90 days they were about as big as they were going to get, and I let some of them stay in the ground for up to 120 days (four months). By then the weather is pushing up to 100 degrees, the greens don't look happy, but the roots were still in excellent shape. I picked the last of them after about 120 days, and the roots were still tender and very edible. These don't get very big here in Phoenix, but they are very sweet turnips, much sweeter than your average purple top turnip, even after leaving them in the ground for 120 days until weather pushed 100 degrees.

Review:

This is an excellent spring turnip here in Central Texas! It grew very quickly and the leaves were smooth and tasty in salads, especially in contrast to the other turnips I've grown. The roots tasted good cooked and raw. This is our new favorite spring turnip!
