Direct Seed:As soon as soil can be worked when soil temperature is 55-75°F. Can be grown in tunnel or greenhouse to extend the season.
Spacing: Sow 1-2" apart for salad turnips or 2-4” apart for storage turnips in rows that are 12-18" apart, at ¼-½" depth.
Growth needs: Prefer cool-season growing in well-drained soil.Tolerant of mild frosts. Salad turnips grow well in warm weather when harvested promptly. Cover with floating row cover after seeding to alleviate pest pressure.
Harvest: When of desired size.
Storage:For roots with greens, store at 32°F with 95% relative humidity for 10 days and up to two weeks. Topped turnips can store in these conditions for 4-6 months.
