This page gives instructions on how to buy doomsday hybrid turnip seeds from David's Garden Seeds. There are two colors: purple and white mixed, red and white. But the flesh on the inside is all white no matter what the outside color. David recommends the white for scavenger deterrence. Turnips can be grown all year here in South Texas. They will last for months on the shelf so really no need to try to can them. The tops of the turnips can be eaten as greens. Turnips can be eaten raw. Peel (the best you can with a potato), slice and eat. The peeling, where most of the vitamins are, can be eaten but will leave a bitter after taste. But when one is trying to survive, they cannot be picky. Turnips mature in just 38 days which makes them great for survival.
Turnip Hakurei 5000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
This is our best selling hybrid turnip. This white salad turnip sets the standard for flavor. The smooth flat-round, white roots mature early, just after radishes, and are best harvested young up to 2 inches in diameter. Eaten raw, the flavor is sweet and fruity, and the texture is crisp and tender. The dark green, hairless tops are useful raw or lightly cooked with the roots. Hakurei stays smooth as it sizes. Harvest in about 38 days.
Turnip Tokyo Cross 5000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
AAS Winner! Best suited for Early Spring and Autumn sowing. Can be harvested at any stage. Harvest at 2 inches at 35 days, grows up to 6 inches. Six inches is very large for a turnip. Late bolting, good flavor. Harvest in about 45 to 65 days.
Turnip Purple Prince 5000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Purple Prince turnip seeds produce bright purple summer harvest turnips. The pure white flesh is crisp and tasty, and never too strong in flavor. Has a deep, intense turnip taste. The strong tops are also delicious, and suitable for picking as greens. The purple on the shoulder is pronounced, and the skins are smooth with a slender tap root. This is a good candidate for planting multiple short rows throughout the season so they don't all come ready at once. Very beautiful half purple half white smooth turnip. Vigorous, high yielding and globe shaped. Harvest to 6" diameter. Harvest in about 55 days.
