Oasis Turnip


Oasis Turnip

(50 days) Brassica rapa F-1 hybrid. The closest we’ve found to the much-sought-after Hakurei turnip, sharing many fine features: 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. Tested negative for BR and BL.

Additional Information

Turnips & Rutabagas

⅛ oz packet sows almost 40 ft; 1 oz about 300 ft. ~8,000-14,000 seeds/oz.

Culture: Hardy members of Cabbage 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°.

Disease: DM: Downy Mildew

Note: We cannot ship packets greater than ½ oz. (14 grams) of rutabagas or turnips into the Willamette Valley. The State of Oregon prohibits shipping any commercial quantity of untreated Brassica, Raphanus or Sinapis because of a quarantine to control Blackleg.
