Easy to Grow!
Reviewed By: Jewelle (Sprague, WA)
We had lots of huge nice turnips. Every seed I planted germinated and I had to do some thinning. So easy to grow a bumper crop. Unfortunately slugs love these turnips too. Had quite a battle keep those away!

Johnny jump-ups
Reviewed By: Linda Atkins (Helena, Montana)
These seeds germinated and virtually jumped up out of the ground. They matured quickly and are delicious. They were so prolific I could hardly keep up with them.
