Seeds: Turnip, Hudson Valley, Tokyo Market Turnip
Sweet, crunchy, fast-growing roots perfect for fresh snacking.
Like all good heroes of Japanese animation, the Tokyo Market Turnip deftly maneuvers through strange and sometimes hostile conditions. Frost barely out of the ground? No problem! Need greens for eating in less than a month? You got it! Want a root crop for the winter that you can sow really late in the season? Koko ni arimasu! The roots remain magically tender, sweet, and delicious despite these challenges. Prepare to be spirited away by this fantastical crop!
Tokyo Market Turnips will make you rethink everything you’ve ever thought about turnips: with a flavor and texture somewhere between a turnip and a radish, they're excellent fresh from the garden, on toast with salt and lemon, pickled, steamed, grilled, roasted, and mashed. Their young green tops make excellent sauté greens.
