Description

Organic Turnip: Goldana. Brassica rapa.

A golden fleshed variety, really crispy and easy to grow.

How to grow:
Sow seeds successionally in a well prepared seed bed from March to April/May and then again from July to August, shallow drills about 35cms apart. Drop a few seeds together so they grow in an easy to harvest bunch. They’ll be ready to harvest from the size of a golf ball to maximum tennis ball size and are fairly fast growing, depending on the weather. The younger they are the more soft they are to eat.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs off when young. Keep well watered so they don’t bolt. Flea beetle can affect the leaves, but they’re not in for very long so it doesn’t matter much.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Turnip skin is thin, so you can roast them whole, or cut up and boil, lovely mashed up with salt and butter.

Cultural history:
Cultivated for centuries for their great taste and nutritional value.

Avg contents:   500 seeds.
