Heritage Collection Turnip Manchester Market is a typical green-top producing large white-fleshed turnips with a mild flavour and is especially recommended for winter storage.

It is best pulled at tennis ball size when the white flesh will be solid but tender. Excellent in stews and casseroles. Leaves from later sowings can be steamed as nutritious greens.

Type: Vegetable
Cropping: 70 days

Best sown mid June to July.
Sowings in August to early September will give smaller roots and a flush of nutritious greens. Sow seed thinly 1cm deep in drills 30cm apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.

When large enough to handle thin seedlings to 1cm apart.

Keep plants well watered and hoe ground regularly. Harvest before roots become too large for the best flavour. Roots can be lifted and stored for use over winter.

Quantity: 750 seeds
