Swede – Willhelmsburger (Organic)


A well-formed, firm-fleshed and smooth-skinned swede, refined in taste and with good keeping qualities. Swede is a very valuable winter vegetable and easy to grow.

Wilhelmsburger is a German variety from 1935 bred for culinary use. Ronja’s favourite recipe for swede is a bake with a creamy sauce and goats cheese. It will also make a great addition in stews or just roasted.
