Swede 'Brora'

Brassica napus (Napobrassica Group), Rutabaga

Hardy Annual

Bred as a culinary swede. Swede Brora has attractive reddish-purple shiny skin and cream base, with fine grained, well-flavoured, creamy yellow flesh, free from any bitterness. Swede Brora is best harvested late autumn up to New Year. Excellent storage qualities. Prefers a rich, well manured soil. Seeds are in the RHS Vegetable Collection.


Companion planting: Try growing swede with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
