Description Sowing More Info Delivery

  • Melon flavoured turnip
If you have never tried to grow this vegetable, you must try Turnip Oasis. Can be picked at any size with a surprisingly sweet juicy flavour similar to a melon. Turnip Oasis is delicious when eaten raw like an apple, or grated and added to salads. Resistant to virus. Ideal for summer and autumn harvests.

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