I don't know how I got started with these, but I grow this variety every year. It has a more delicate texture and a more delicate flavor than almost any other variety. The young tender greens are fabulous as well. I pick these when golf ball sized or a little larger. I peel the roots and slice them thin and braise them in butter with a little maple syrup, and a few tablespoons of water till glazed. Delicious! Healthy and productive. In a year when all your other crops seem to be doing badly, growing turnips is great for one's self esteem.
