Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
The Purple Top Globe Turnip, although deep-rooted in tradition, is quite adaptable to modern gardening techniques. Suitable for both garden beds and containers, this plant requires well-draining soil and a sunny to partially shaded location. Sow the seeds directly into the ground in early spring or late summer, spacing them about 2-3 inches apart in rows that are 12-18 inches apart. Regular watering and occasional fertilizing will ensure a bountiful harvest. Once the roots reach their optimal size, they can be harvested and stored for prolonged periods, especially during winter.
