A British-bred F1 hybrid swede, early maturing and vigorous variety, growing particularly well in less fertile soils. The globe-shaped roots have attractive purple shoulders, an excellent cream coloured flesh of a fine texture and flavour. Excellent disease resistance including club root.
Swede, an abbreviation for Swedish turnip, is extremely hardy, and grows well in cool, moist climates - it’s the perfect winter vegetable. Swedes need a constant supply of moisture to grow well and are happy in heavier soils. Try swede mashed with pepper or nutmeg and a little cream, it is absolutely delicious.
