2377TR Oasis Turnip (50 days) Brassica rapa F-1 hybrid. More customers asked us for the Hakurei turnip than for any other variety. In many years of searching, Oasis is the closest we've found, sharing many fine features with Hakurei: smooth round globes, refined pure white color, delicate sweet fruity flavor and crisp tender texture so suitable for salads and light cooking. Our purchaser Nikos Kavanya esteems it highly. Good for fall as well as early summer crops. Best harvested at bunching size, but retains quality for a while. From Takii in Japan. Tolerant to DM.

Additional Information

Turnips And Rutabagas

1/8 oz packet sows almost 40 ft, 1 oz about 300 ft. All open-pollinated except #2377 Oasis. ~9,000 seeds/oz. Hardy members of Crucifer family. Thinning is critical for full-sized roots. Turnips have a shorter growing season and are not as cold-hardy or as good keepers as rutabagas. Turnips are best picked before they get large and fibrous. Rutabagas, also known as Swedish turnips or Swedes, form enlarged roots above ground with a finely branched system below.

Minimum germination temperature for turnips 40°, optimal range 60-95°, optimal temperature 75°, 79% normal seedlings at 50°, 98% normal at 59°.
