Turnip 'Manchester Market' - HeritageBrassica rapa (Rapifera Group)

Just £2.29

Description Sowing More Info Delivery

Globe shaped, white roots with solid but tender green crown. Best pulled at tennis ball size when the white flesh will be solid but tender. Best sown in July, sowings in August to early September will give smaller roots and a flush of nutritious 'greens'. Excellent in stews and casseroles. Leaves from later sowings steamed as nutritious 'greens'.


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

Sowing Months Harvest Months

Keep plants well watered and hoe ground regularly. Harvest before roots become too large, for the best flavour. Roots can be lifted and stored for use over winter.

Sow mid June to July, or to early September for smaller roots. Sow seed thinly 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.

When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 10cm (4in) apart.
