organic rutabaga seedBrassica napus

Organic Rutabaga Joan (90-100 days)

2 grams per Packet / Approx. 250 to 300 seeds per gram

 


Joan is hands down one of the best textured and sweetest rutabagas available today. 

The tubers have a nice round uniformity with purple tops. 

Plant rutabaga in the early midsummer for a delicious fall harvest. 

Taste improves with a hard frost. 

Joan rutabaga is amazing roasted or used in a hearty winter soup. 

Good resistance to club root disease.
