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.
