TURNIP – GOLD BALL

Brassica Rapa

A truly exceptional turnip. It was first recorded in France as early as 1854 & is still very common. These turnips grow to 7-10 cm fairly uniform. This heritage variety is fine-grained, smooth, & never woody like other turnips can be, it has a sweet, mild flavor & smooth skin, with creamy yellow to orange flesh depending on the soil type. It stores well & can be used at various stages of maturity. Can be grown most of the year & the tops are also edible as greens.

Plant seeds outdoors where they are to grow & cover seeds with 0.7cm of fine soil. When young seedlings are 5 to 10 cm tall, thin to 10 to 15cm apart. Avoid using fresh manure in a soil where you plant turnips. Plants produce best in light, well-drained soil.
