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.
