[60 days] Recommended by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany, this globular turnip is both beautiful and tasty. The roots are grow quickly, maturing partially above the soil. When harvested small, they’re excellent roasted whole and are so sweet that even the larger ones taste great raw when grated into salads. The tops are excellent added into salads and stir fries. (They’re also particularly nutritious.) A quick and early grower, Snowball will keep you set in turnips from early summer through early winter. A Japanese heirloom from the 1800s.
