Turnip – Goldana
An improved version of the Golden Ball turnip, creamy-yellow flesh, tender and sweet, suited for spring and autumn sowing. Turnips are very traditional vegetables which, unlike most of the vegetables we eat, are native to Europe. For some reason they are not as popular anymore as they used to be.
Goldana is a tasty maincrop variety with a uniform golden round shape, probably one of the mildest and sweetest varieties that you can find. They are really quick to grow and do not need much attention. “Get them in, get them out” is what Fred says. He likes them in soups or stews, they can also be roasted, mashed or grated into a slaw or salad.
