Purple Top White Globe Turnip is the most popular variety grown worldwide for good reason; the entire plant is edible. Enjoy the tops as greens, cooked "southern style" and feast on the fine grained sweet flesh of the root, which averages 4" inches at the broad shoulder. Turnips are excellent for canning, freezing and storing in a root cellar during the cold season. Grown in the United States dating back to 1881, this heirloom variety remains the tried and true favorite. 50 days. Packet: approx. 400 seeds.
