Turnip <em>&lsquo;Snowball&rsquo;</em>

For a quick crop, this fast-maturing variety is one of the best. The pure white globes are best harvested while young, when their deliciously crisp, firm, white flesh can be enjoyed raw or cooked.

Sow: Early spring to midsummer
Harvest: Late spring onward
Soil Preference: Well-drained soil, moist soil
Sun or Shade: Full sun, partial or dappled shade
