Turnip - Snowball
Snowball produces pure white, globe-shaped roots with sweet, juicy flesh, making them the popular choice for spring sowing and successional use. The tops can also be used as tasty greens.
Sow from March to June. Early sowings are best made under cloches. Sow seed direct into growing site in seed drills, 2cm deep with rows spaced 30cm apart. Sow in succession every 14 days to prolong the harvest period. As soon as the first rough leaves appear, thin to 10cm 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. Ready to harvest from June to October.
