Care: Keep soil moist, weed free, and apply vegetable food every 4 weeks.
Harvesting: Pick outer greens when the plants are young. Begin pulling roots when they reach 2" in diameter.

        Comments about American Meadows Purple Top White Globe Turnip Seeds:

        I was going to sell these at my roadside produce stand but they were too bitter. It could have been my growing conditions but I am a little leary.

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
