Description

Position: full sun Soil: light and fertile Globe shaped roots with cream coloured flesh and skin that has a purple flush near their top. These vigorous growing-vegetables have a good resistance to clubroot and are very hardy, so they can be left in the ground and lifted when required throughout the winter. They provide a very good source of provitamin A, as well as vitamins B and C. Growing Instructions: Swede dislikes being transplanted, so sow direct where it is to grow in shallow drills. As seedlings emerge thin to final spaces of 10-15cm. Protect against slugs and keep well-watered to prevent roots turning woody. The roots can stay in the ground until you need them – or you can lift them and store them in boxes of damp sand in a frost-free shed. You can also eat the green leaves, but pick them sparingly to leave enough on the plant to keep the root developing. Cook these like spring greens. Sow: May to June Harvest: October onwards Approximate quantity: 250 seeds.
