TURNIPS GROWING GUIDE

  • Turnips are easy to grow when planted in the right season and mature in just two months. They are biennials usually grown as annuals.


  • Although turnips are more of a staple in European kitchens, many southern gardeners like to grow them for the nutritious turnip greens.
  • Turnips grow best in a temperate climate but can endure light frost. Fall crops are usually sweeter and more tender than spring crops—and pests are less of a problem.
  • Turnips have been grown for over 3,000 years, and are especially valuable because all parts of the plants can be eaten (the swollen root and the greens). They are often used as a substitute for potatoes.
  • There are many varieties of summer squash to choose from, including zucchini. The main difference between winter and summer varieties is their harvest time; the longer growing period gives winter squash a tougher, inedible skin. Here are their various botanical names: Cucurbita pepo (Summer squash/Zucchini), C. maxima (True winter), C. pepo (Acorn, delicata, spaghetti) , C. moschata (butternut).

PLANTING

  • Select a site that gets full Sun.
  • Soil should be well-draining and loosened to a depth of 12 to 15 inches.
  • Mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost. Till soil well.
  • Start sowing as soon as the ground is workable.
  • Scatter turnip seed. Do not cover the seeds with more than ½ an inch of soil.
  • Once seedlings are 4 inches high, thin “early” types 2 to 4 inches apart and maincrop types to 6 inches apart. Do not thin if growing for greens only.

PLANT CARE

  • Keep the beds weed free.
  • Mulch heavily.
  • Water at a rate of 1 inch per week to prevent the roots from becoming tough and bitter.

PESTS/DISEASES

  • Root Maggots
  • Flea Beetles
  • Powdery Mildew
  • Downy Mildew
  • Aphids

HARVEST/STORAGE

  • Harvest some turnips very early as turnip greens.
  • Harvest early types after about 5 weeks; maincrop types after 6 to 10 weeks.
  • Harvest turnips at any size you wish. The small, young turnips are nice and tender.
  • Pull mature turnips before they become woody and before the first frost.
  • Store for up to 3 or 4 months in a cool outdoor place covered with straw.
