A classis Japanese turnip, as with American varieties it is used both for the roots and the tops. Plants quickly mature to a height of 20 inches while lovely, round 4 inch diameter roots are developed. Shogoin is often pickled, used in soups, braised, or in a salad. Since it is such a quick grower it also makes a good fall crop.
Germination: 5-7 days
Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 60-75ºF.
Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep
Sowing Outdoors: Starting in early spring through late summer. Sow 1/2-1" apart, thin to 3-6" apart, soon after the seedlings emerge. Sow every 7-10 days for a continuous harvest.
How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row
Harvest: Leafy greens and roots from baby to full size. The younger the roots the more tender better flavor.
Tips: They need rapid growth for optimum results. Provided fertile soil and consistent moisture. Amend with compost at planting time if needed.

I had very poor germination results. I'm not sure if the soil temperature was incorrect or the moisture content was too low but I had not many plants to work with.
