Very tasty, mild and sweet! Terrific cooked or raw with bright yellow flesh that is top quality. A pre-1920 heirloom, Rutabagas (B. napas) are a great fall vegetable. (65-90 days)
Each packet contains approximately 400 seeds.
Best in cooler summer climates, where they are sown in spring into loose, rich moist soil, about 1/2 inch deep and several inches apart in all directions. Harvesting in Autumn.
In hot summer regions a crop is possible by sowing after mid-summer, about 4 months before killing frost, which may not kill the plants but will stop their growth. Shading the ground and keeping uniformly moist may assist germination.
