Turnip Sweetbell F1

Item Number: 14909
  • Description
  • Ideal for use raw in salads and stir fries, Sweetbell has an exceptionally sweet, firm crisp texture. It is a globe type with a purple shoulder with outstanding uniformity.

    Turnips are fast growing root vegetables which add a different flavour grated raw in salads, added to casseroles or served as a separate vegetable completely. When pulled young, they are a far cry from the woody, sad examples that can often be seen in the supermarkets today.
