(Brassica rapa) Shogoin is a popular Japanese turnip that produces tender, smooth white roots. It’s also known for its high-quality mild, green tops that can be harvested in as little as 30 days.

Delicious in soups, salads, or stir-fry. Ideal variety for pickling.

Germination Temperature Planting Depth Days to Germination Plant Spacing Row Spacing Sun

Planting Instructions:
Sow outside 2-4 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures reach at least 50°F. For a continuous harvest, plant successive sowings every 2 weeks up to 8-10 weeks before average last frost.

Additional Tips:
For better germination, soak seeds overnight in damp towel.

Plant in early spring, then again in late summer for a fall harvest.

Keep soil evenly moist to prevent turnips from getting woody.

Harvesting:
Harvest when roots are no larger than 2-3" in diameter. If allowed to grow larger, up to 6", it will still work well for cooking or roasting, but will not be as nice for fresh eating.

Companion Plants:
Plant with peas, cabbage.
Hindered by mustard.
