Purple Top Turnip Seeds (57 days)

1881 D.M. Ferry Catalog says about American Purple Top Turnip Seeds...
"A variety of the purple top flat turnip, from which it originated. We are inclined to think that this new variety will in time be as largely used as the purple top flat turnip is now. It is globular in form, and quite as large as the Pomeranean White Globe, of beautiful appearance, of most excellent quality, and equally desirable for table or stock. It is undoubtedly a fine market sort, and keeps well."

1927 Burrell's Seed Catalog says about American Purple Top Turnip Seeds...
"This excellent table variety is globular in shape, of good size and very attractive appearance. The roots are large, purple or dark red above the ground, white below. The flesh is white, fine grained and tender. The roots, when in best condition for the table, are about 3 inches in diameter, but can be grown much larger for stock feeding. This sort keeps well for so early a variety and is one of the best for market use. Sometimes known as Red Top White Globe."

1935 Isbell's Seed Co. catalog says about American Purple Top Turnip Seeds...
"One of the handsomest and most salable turnips. Desirable for either home or market. Large, rapid-growing sort, with globular-shaped roots, under portion being white and top bright purple. Flesh pure white, fine grained and of fine flavor. Sure cropper and splendid keeper. Grown extensively here in Michigan as well as in most other sections; a heavy yielder. Ready to use in 65 days."

Planting Tips For Turnip Seeds:

Heirloom turnip seeds can be planted in early spring or midsummer.  Soak seeds overnight in damp towel before planting for excellent germination.  Plant turnip seeds 1” apart and thin weakest seedlings to desired spacing.  Keep soil evenly moist to prevent roots from getting woody.  For longer harvest, stagger plantings every 2-3 weeks.

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
