These turnip seeds produce sweet, colorful, mild-tasting roots that add flavor to a variety of dishes. High in Vitamin C, fiber, and other nutrients, they can be cooked like mashed potatoes, added to soups, shredded or sliced fresh for salads, and can even be eaten raw like apples. The leafy green tops of turnips are even more nutritious than the roots and are considered to be one of the best-flavored greens you can eat. With so many uses, the turnip is unjustifiably a forgotten vegetable that should be in more gardens! For the most tender texture and best flavor, harvest the greens when they are young and tender and the roots when they are no more than 2" in diameter. Leave 4" of foliage remaining to allow the roots to continue to grow. This variety of turnip stores particularly well, adding even more length to your cool-season vegetable repertoire.
