Fast-growing spring turnip crops are best harvested while the weather is still cool. The flavor of fall crops is improved by light frost. Don’t forget the greens which are delightful raw or cooked.

Growing Guide
GROWING NOTES
Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. Needs plentiful, consistent moisture. Loosen soil deeply or grow in raised beds to encourage good root development. Will tolerate less-than-ideal conditions, but poor soil will slow growth and hurt quality and flavor.

Biennial grown as an annual.

MAINTAINING
From early spring to late summer, sow seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep, 1 inch apart in rows 12 to 18 inches apart. Thin plants to 4- to 6-inch spacings.

Plant every 2 weeks for continuous harvest. Quality and flavor are best if harvested when whether is cool.

Use floating row cover to protect crop from early pests.

To help reduce disease, do not plant turnips or other cole crops in the same location more than once every three or four years.
