Description

British bred for hybrid vigour and uniformity, Swede 'Tweed' grows particularly well in less fertile soil making it the perfect choice for the home gardener. The globe-shaped roots have attractive purple shoulders, and tasty cream coloured flesh of a fine texture. This superb variety is ideal for a late autumn harvest. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 25cm (10").

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

How to Grow
Grow Swedes in a weed free, sunny position in non-alkaline, light, fertile, well drained soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.
More Info

Water swede regularly, particularly during dry periods to prevent skins from splitting. Hoe between rows to reduce weed growth. Swedes require a long growing season and will not mature until the autumn. Harvest swede from October to December, lifting individual swede as and when required. At the end of the year, any remaining roots should be lifted to prevent them becoming woody and stored in damp peat for winter use.
