Tried winter-sowing this turnip and also Hida Beni - planted groups of five or six seeds in clear plastic jugs, cut and hinged, and left them outside to germinate when the seeds decided it was time. Moved the seedlings to a garden bed in early to mid-May (Zone 4, endless winter, everything was late), kept them in clumps but gave each clump good space, and protected them with lightweight row cover until harvest. Both varieties grew terrific greens, but the Tokinashi roots were superb, too. Fine-textured, buttery even before adding butter, lovely mild taste. The plants put up with a few days in the 70s without immediately bolting, which we appreciated. Excellent turnip! Looking forward to trying it as a fall crop next.
