Thank You. This is truly the Turnip I am looking for. I am so happy with joyful tears, as this Turnip comes from the State of the Man who gave my Great Grandfather his Freedom; The God Send Benjamin Franklin Butler who was a Major General for the Union Army at Fort Monroe. He was a Great Lawyer and businessman from Massachusetts. I will grow these Heirloom Turnips on the Contraband Slaves Market Places that is one of My Mini Farms, doing a crop rotation every 3 years. With General Butler Business background he truly helped the Contraband Slaves and Natives Americans trade food From Virginia to North Carolina and South Carolina. The Othe Rutabaga Seeds I brought from a trusted place I will grow in Angel Field Heirloom Tomatoes.
Thank you so much, Amen!!

I hope they turn out well for you. I love turnips, but have only grown Japanese white turnips which do not get very big. Out of curiosity I have ordered some Eastham turnip seed to try myself, as they are supposed to be sweet turnips. You've got to love a town that holds a festival devoted to turnips:

Art Nickerson was my kind of Farmer, with the Spirit of "God's Mother Earth, Amen!! I will save this information and I will plant my Eastham Sweet Turnips after the 4th of July. It is Just Beautiful that his town supported his efforts in saving his family's farming history and these Precious Historical Heirloom Eastham Turnips. Just Beautiful. I know he is in heaven with Dr. Carolyn and Mayor General Benjamin Butler who also put forth the first Civil Rights Laws in Congress. I wish to visit this town one day. I will plant these seeds in my greenhouse to get a jump start; just to see and taste them. But I will start more seeds after the "4th Of July“ to follow in his farming footsteps with the spirit of his Loving Town.

Thank You DK2021

I will keep you posted on my Eastham Turnip Progress, Amen!!

Farmer, Joyce Beggs

One thing I love about turnips is that you get both the greens and the root, and if you love greens as I do, that's a great deal. I love the sweet little Japanese turnips, and I love the rapini type brassicas. I usually roast or braise turnips (root and/or greens) to caramelize the natural sugars.
