Soil & Water: Turnips like loose, moderately fertile soil with a pH of 6.5-7.0. Water moderately. They prefer cool weather and grow best when grown quickly in 60-65F daytime temperatures.

Planting & Growing: While seeds can be started indoors, they perform best when seeds are sown directly 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Sow every 2 weeks through midsummer for a continuous harvest.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest a few greens when the plants are young and eat the rest when you harvest the roots at a length of 3″-4″. The greens and roots are best eaten fresh, though both can be frozen. Store roots in cool, moist conditions.
