Product Description

Purplish leaves and globes with mild turnip-cabbage flavour. Leaves are eaten like kale & white-fleshed bulbs are eaten like broccoli. Plants grow to 45 cm tall, with globes growing above the soil.

Plant in early spring for a summer harvest & again in late summer for autumn & winter harvests. Harvest bulbs when tennis-ball sized. Peel & remove all tough and woody parts before slicing & cooking.

A pre-1860 heirloom, crisp white flesh; tender and sweet. Excellent flavour; can be eaten raw or cooked. Good in salads, soups and stews.
