Description

Turning the idea of the traditionally dull root vegetable on its head, here's a truly outstanding tasting 'salad turnip'! The attractive purple-topped roots have a succulent white flesh and are delicious cooked or simply grated raw in salads. There's no bitter aftertaste however you eat it. And you can eat the leaves too as they are hairless! Add them to a salad or steam them like spinach - this is a real 'eat all' vegetable.

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

Sowing
Turnips grow best on rich well manured soil but will grow on ordinary fertile soil to which has been added plenty of well rotted compost. Sow seeds in succession from spring to mid summer, 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.

Thin out the seedlings to 10-15cm(4-6in) apart.

More Info

Turnips should be grown quickly and kept well watered. Harvest them before they get too large for the best flavour. For greens follow above instructions but don't thin out. The season can be extended by sowing under cloches in early spring and again in late summer.
