Fuku Komachi Turnip


Slow to bolt. Fuku Komachi, defined as beauty and fortune, perfectly describes this pure white summer hybrid turnip. Thin skinned, globe shaped roots are quickly formed in cool temperatures, with best flavour when harvested at 2" diameter. No peeling required. Larger size roots can also be harvested at later maturity for cooking as it is slow to bolt and roots tend to lack pithiness. Matures in 40-45 days, Approx. 350 seeds/pkg.

Hakeuri-type turnips have become a favourite in many gardens across the country. These delicious young hybrid turnips were bred in Japan and now have become one of the easiest and earliest vegetables to grow. The flavour is sweet, delicate and mild but still has that natural earthy flavour of winter turnips that is so enticing. Young leaves are prepared just like spinach and can also be included in your favourite soup, stew or salad as a green.
