A favorite among home gardeners, this heirloom variety produces high yields of very attractive, round, 4-6 inch, purple-topped roots that have a wonderfully crisp, sweet and mild flavor. Purple Top White Globe Turnip's fine-grained texture makes it tops for fresh eating, but the roots are also good roasted with other root vegetables or cooked into soups and stews. The tops make good greens. This is one of our favorite turnips for growing as a fall crop, as frost enhances their flavor. 55 DAYS.
