A tender heirloom Turnip known for its sweet and subtly tangy taste, and attractively blushed purple crowns. The creamy white, globe-shaped roots are delicious in soups and stews, and can be mashed or roasted just like potato.
Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover with Yates Black Magic Seed Raising Mix. Firm down well and keep moist. Avoid overcrowding by thinning out and discarding excess seedlings when 4-5 weeks old.
Sow into deep, well drained soil in a Sunny position. Add Yates Thrive Natural Blood & Bone to soil before sowing, to help ensure a good crop. Water well in early stages. Harvest roots while young and tender. Protect from snails and slugs.
Great companion plant for marjoram, peas and tomatoes. Young leaves can be used as a green vegetable.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct Sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
