This cool-season cole crop produces a turnip-flavored swollen stem in as little as 6 weeks. In addition to spring crops, you can tuck in transplants or sow seeds anywhere space becomes available in summer. The bizarre alien-from-outer-space appearance makes it an eye-stopper in ornamental plantings, too.

Growing Guide
GROWING NOTES
Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. This heavy feeder also needs plentiful, consistent moisture.

Biennial grown as an annual.

Leaves arise from spherical swollen stem.

MAINTAINING
Prefers cool weather - in the 60s F -- but can be grown throughout the season in most of New York. Plants are sensitive to cold. Brief exposure to freezing temperatures can cause plants to bolt. A week of temperatures below 50 can also induce flowering.

Begin direct-seeding about a month before last frost. Plant about ½ inch deep and 1 inch apart in rows 12 inches apart. Thin to about 6-inch spacings.

For fall harvest, transplant or direct-seed into garden in summer as space becomes available.
