Vegetables Turnips Hakurei

Hakurei

(F1) Turnip Seed

Product ID: 706

This white salad turnip sets the standard for flavor.

The flat-round, smooth, white roots mature early, just after radishes, and are best harvested young, up to 2" diameter. Eaten raw, the flavor is sweet and fruity, and the texture is crisp and tender. The dark-green, hairless tops are useful raw or lightly cooked with the roots. Hakurei stays smooth as it sizes. Avg. 181,650 seeds/lb. Packet: 400 seeds.

Additional Information



CULTURE: Turnips are tolerant of moderate frost as seedlings in spring, and as mature plants in fall. Turnips prefer a fertile, well-drained soil, with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Sow early spring through late summer in a 2-4" wide band, seeds 1" apart (35 seeds/ft.) for small turnips or 2" apart and half this rate for larger turnips. Sow 1/4- 1/2" deep in rows 12-18" apart.
INSECT PESTS: Floating row covers installed at the time of sowing will keep the turnips free of insect pests, including flea beetles and root maggots.
HARVEST: Young, radish-size turnips in about 30 days, full size in 40-50 days. Roots are smoothest when small.
STORAGE: Turnips with greens store at 32°F (0°C) and 95% relative humidity for 10-14 days. Not intended for long-term winter storage.
