Turnip 'Atlantic'

Brassica rapa (Rapifera Group)

Hardy Annual

Brassica rapa var. rapa. Flatter, globe-shaped roots with purple crowns and white bases, ideal as baby turnips when the taste is sweet and succulent. Dark green, erect leaves are ideal steamed as 'greens'. Turnip Atlantic is ideal for growing in containers.


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