Swede & Turnip

Swedes are a full season root crop which are mainly fed in situ; but can also be lifted and stored in a clamp. They do best in areas of high rainfall, so are generally grown in the more northerly and western areas of the UK. Swedes also need good soil conditions and good drainage as they are sensitive to poor drainage; they do best in soils with a ph of approximately 6.5. Varieties are generally classed as fodder or culinary types; however there are some dual purpose types.

Turnips are later maturing than Stubble turnips with a higher dry matter and better winter hardiness. They have a growing period of 12-15 weeks.
