Classic American turnip. Very popular Southern staple for both the root and greens. Very attractive smooth, round, 3- 6" diameter roots are white below the soil line and blushed with pink to purple at the crown. Fine-grained, tender, crisp, very sweet with a mild bite. Best eating at 2-4." Harvest young (2") for tender gourmet baby turnips! Large, lobed, semi-erect, 12-24"H mid-green tops make the classic cooked southern greens. These are also best when picked small. Harvesting greens regularly makes this a cut-and-come again variety. Store well. Cold hardy, heat and humidity tolerant. Light frost brings out the taste! Favorite for Home Gardens, Fresh Markets, Processing, Commercial and Shipping.
