Vegetable Seeds - Swede

Swede looks similar to turnip and is still known as ‘Swedish Turnip’ in America. It is a member of the brassica family so club root will be a problem if you have this on your plot. Swedes take 20-26 weeks to reach maturity.

This vigorous, uniform hybrid grows well even on poorer soils. The attractive globe-shaped, purple-shouldered roots boast tasty, fine-textured, cream-coloured flesh.What are F1 Hybrids?Seed can be either Open Pollinated or a F1 Hybrid. Open pollinated seed is naturally pollinated and genetically diverse. F1 hybrids are deliberately created by crossing two different parent varieties to produce a seed which has particular characteristics.Garden Organics Principles of Organic Gardening allow the use of F1 hybrids only when there are no other alternatives available to the grower. On these rare occasions, an organic F1 hybrid is preferred but, if unavailable, a non-organic F1 hybrid can be used.If youre growing to save seed, Garden Organic recommends choosing an Open Pollinated variety. F1 Hybrids are less likely to produce seed true to type or hold the same characteristics as the plant you saved it from.
