Shogoin Turnip (30 Days)

$ 1.95

The Shogoin Turnip is a classic 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.
