Shogoin Turnip is an open-pollinated, heirloom that matures in 42 days. Popular Japanese variety grown for both its delicious mild greens and fine-grained roots. Delicious, broad leafy, mild tasting greens grow 18- 20″H. The large, pure white, fine-grained, 6-8″ diameter, firm, crisp globe is most tender when harvested at 3-4″. The shape of Shogoin Turnip resembles a wooden top. Thrives in hot dry weather. It is often pickled, used in soups, stir-fries, braised or in salads. Both leaves and root can be harvested in the “baby” stage for gourmet dishes. Excellent choice for commercial production, home gardens and market growers.
