Turnip greens are extremely easy to grow, especially in fall. As nights get longer and cooler, turnip greens become crisper and sweeter. Best of all, a new flush of tender leaves will grow after each picking, with plants remaining productive at least until the first hard freeze, and sometimes beyond.

Lifecycle: annual, Biennial grown as an annual.
Ease-of-care: easy
Shape: cushion, mound or clump
Fast-growing spring turnip crops are best harvested while the weather is still cool. The flavour of fall crops is improved by light frost. Don’t forget the greens which are delightful raw or cooked.

Common name: Swedish turnip, yellow turnip
Height: 5 to 8 inches
Difficulty level: Easy

Planting & Care
For best results, sow spring crops as soon as the soil can be worked. Broadcast turnip seed over a well-tilled bed. Rake to cover seeds with 1/2 inch of soil or use a tiller set on shallow to bury the seeds.

Sunlight: full sun, part shade

Soil: Requires well-drained soil, Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil. Needs plentiful, consistent moisture. Loosen soil deeply or grow in raised beds to encourage good root development. Will tolerate less-than-ideal conditions, but poor soil will slow growth and hurt quality and flavour.

Water: Water at a rate of 1 inch per week to prevent the roots from becoming tough and bitter.

Temprature: Germination temperature: 45 F to 85 F - Will germinate at soil temperatures as low as 40 F.

Fertilizer: Ideally, you should enrich the ground with compost and fertilizer before setting out plants, but unless the soil is extremely poor, turnip greens probably won’t disappoint you.

Care:
  • Loosen the soil to a 12-15 inch depth and mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost.
  • Start sowing as soon as the ground is workable.
  • Space early types 9 inches apart, thinning seedlings to 4 inches.
  • Space maincrop types 12 inches apart, thinning to 6 inches.
  • Do not cover the seeds with more than 1/2 an inch of soil.
  • Do not thin if growing for greens only.


Harvesting: Harvest early types after about 5 weeks; maincrop types after 6-10 weeks. Pull turnips before they become woody and before the first frost. Store for up to 3 or 4 months in a cool outdoor place covered with straw.

Care:
  • Keep the beds weed free.
  • Mulch heavily and water at a rate of 1 inch per week to prevent the roots from becoming tough and bitter.
