Vegetable Seeds - Turnip

Modern hybrid turnips are nothing like the big woody turnips of old. The small Japanese white varieties are delicious grated raw into a salad or as a wonderful side dish. Swedes are now the better choice for stews.

Reputed to be a fantastic winter keeper, this turnip is sown in the late summer, for winter use.
