Turnip - Seven Top- Brassica rapa

Biennial. Seven Top does not grow a turnip root - it puts all of its energy into growing the best turnip greens you have ever tasted. It's not a commonly growing vegetable, but it should be. There are not many greens more nutritious and tasty when steamed, stir-fried, or used in salads. Seeds can also be used for sprouts.

Soil & Water: Turnips like loose, moderately fertile soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Water moderately.

Planting & Growing: While seeds can be started indoors, they perform best when seeds are sown directly 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Sow every 2 weeks through midsummer for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest a few greens when the plants are young and eat the rest when you harvest the roots at a length of 3"-4". The greens and roots are best eaten fresh, though both can be frozen. Store roots in cool, moist conditions.

Did You Know? Turnip greens are an excellent source of many vitamins including vitamins A, C, E, B6, folate and the minerals calcium, copper and manganese. Seven Top turnip roots are not good for human consumption, animal fodder only.
