Purple Top White Globe Turnip

A very popular turnip, this variety has a large white globe with purple tops and has a lovely mild and sweet flavour. Turnips are frost tolerant and can grow in a wide range of soils, often preferring heavier soil to loose.

Sow direct and thin out once they reach 2cm tall. Easy to grow just remember to water regularly and consistently.

Health & Culinary

Young turnips can be eaten raw like a radish and turnip tops can be cooked like spinach. Larger globes are great in soups and stews and are delicious roasted. Source of vitamins A, C and calcium.
