Used as a substitute for turnips, especially on hot, dry soils which rarely grow first class turnips. Very popular in Germany. Grown for their edible stems, the lower parts of which thicken like turnips. They should be gathered young. Sow seed end of March, transplant in rows 2 ft. apart, 1 ft. between each. Good rich soil, sunny position, general culture as cabbage. It does not run to seed. Late sowings can be left in the ground during winter and pulled as needed.
