Rutabaga
Rutabagas take longer to mature than turnips, but otherwise grow the same way. They store well in the ground during cool weather without getting pithy.

Heirloom. Rutabaga is a cool-season vegetable grown for its large root, which is also called Swedish turnip. A natural cross between cabbage and turnip, its yellowish root and smooth leaves distinguish it from a true turnip. It also tastes sweeter. Try it steamed, baked, or eaten raw. High in vitamin A. Makes a great fall crop as frost will make the root even sweeter. Cold hardy and drought tolerant.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
