Shogoin Turnip (30 Days)

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.

    I like the turnip.

    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.
