Gilfeather Rutabaga (Organic Heirloom 85 Days)

4 reviews

A legendary root from Vermont that is a cross between a rutabaga and turnip. Developed in the late 19th century by John Gilfeather of Wardsboro. Large, oblong-shaped roots have green shoulders, white flesh, and edible greens. Flavor and texture are excellent, sweet and smooth, improving after a frost. A good storage crop for a root cellar.

RUTABAGA(GIL)

First time I have ever planted. Germination was very good and I am waiting to see how they progress through the season.

Pinetree is always my first choice.

Have not planted it yet, but I am a long satisfied customer.

Packaging

Your seed packets have a self stick flap which I find very useful. However, this year, there is a sticker over the flap that makes the packet very difficult to open without shredding it. Can you please put the upc sticker elsewhere on the packet? If not, I may take my seed business to another company that has functional self stick flaps on their seed packets.. Thank you.
