Purple Top White Globe, organic seeds
Comes from a selected strain of Purple Top egg turnip which was introduced in 1880, it is still one of the most frequently grown egg turnips. The uniform, round roots are white below ground and lightly red-violet above. Purple Top is vigorous, sound and hardy and can be allowed to grow a little larger than other sorts without becoming spongy. It has tasty leaves as well and can be stored for a few months in a cellar. It is very good for souring. A portion contains about 300 seeds.
