Turnip Tokyo Cross F1
Tokyo Cross Turnip is an outstanding variety, packed full of good flavour and pure white roots. You can use the bright green tops in salads or steam as a vegetable. Sow in spring or early summer
The interest in what we have classed liberally as "Oriental Vegetables" increases every year. They can be used raw in salads, or lightly cooked for use in stir frys and numerous Chinese style meals. We hope you will be tempted to give something different a try.

When to sow
When to Sow Tokyo Cross Turnip Seeds
March to June
Where to Sow
Early sowings are best made under cloches. Sow seed direct into growing site in seed drills 2cm (3/4in) deep with rows spaced 30cm (12in) apart. Sow in succession every 14 days to prolong the harvest period.
What to do next
As soon as first rough leaves appear, thin to 10cm (4in) apart. Harvest from when roots are golf ball size, pull alternate roots to maximise crop. Water regularly during hot dry weather to prevent roots from going woody.
June to October
Can be grown for turnip tops, an alternative to spinach. Sow a little thicker but do not thin, treat as cut and come again crop.
A good source of Vitamins B6 and a very good source of dietary fibre and Vitamin C.
