Turnip, Wonnegold (Organic)
$3.50 – $12.00
Brassica rapa. 75 days.
Beautiful creamy golden colored turnips. Flesh is the same color as the outside. Slightly flattened globes have mild radish-like flavor and are very winter hardy. Best sown early spring or fall. A very old heritage variety best used in sauerkrauts, stews and roasting. Seed originally from an Austrian Biodynamic CSA and seed farm called Ochsenherz (Oxheart). We picked up this seed at an Organic Seed Alliance conference seed swap in 2012 and knew we had a packet of gold in our hands. Name translates as “gold bliss” from German.
As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested and found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.
