Description – A first-class white, globe turnip. Turnip Snowball is early, juicy and sweet flavoured, will yield a good supply from early summer to early winter, and the tops make most nutritious and tasty ‘greens’.
Sowing – Turnips grow best on rich well manured soil but will grow on ordinary fertile soil to which has been added plenty of well rotted compost. Sow seeds in succession from spring to mid summer, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart.
Growing – Thin out the seedlings to 1-15cm(4-6in) apart.
Aftercare – Turnips should be grown quickly and kept well watered. Harvest them before they get too large for the best flavour. For greens follow above instructions but don’t thin out. The season can be extended by sowing under cloches in early spring and again in late summer.
Harvest – September to December
