Botanical Interests Purple Top White Globe Turnip Seeds
These organic turnip seeds produce sweet, colorful, mild-tasting roots that add flavor to a variety of dishes. High in Vitamin C, fiber, and other nutrients, they can be cooked like mashed potatoes, added to soups, shredded or sliced fresh for salads, and can even be eaten raw like apples. The leafy green tops of turnips are even more nutritious than the roots and are considered to be one of the best-flavored greens you can eat. With so many uses, the turnip is unjustifiably a forgotten vegetable that should be in more gardens! For the most tender texture and best flavor, harvest the greens when they are young and tender and the roots when they are no more than 2" in diameter. Leave 4" of foliage remaining to allow the roots to continue to grow. This variety of turnip stores particularly well, adding even more length to your cool-season vegetable repertoire.
When to plant outside: RECOMMENDED. Early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before the average last frost or when soil temperatures reach 45 degrees. You can do successive plantings every 3 weeks until heat of summer in warm climates. In USDA zone 8 or warmer, plant in early fall through early spring for a winter supply.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
