(F1) Turnip Seed

Product ID: 706

This white salad turnip sets the standard for flavor.

The smooth, flat-round, 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 tops are useful raw or lightly cooked. Hakurei stays smooth as it sizes. Avg. 181,650 seeds/lb. Packet: 400 seeds.
