Seven Top Turnip Greens

40-45 days. Virtually rootless, Seven Top was developed solely for its delicious green top growth, arguably the best tasting Turnip Green variety available. It has deep forest green serrated leaves that are high in vitamins A, B and C. Harvest just prior to use when they are young, tender and 12" tall before they develop inedible, tough, woody stems that can grow to 22". Traditionally a main ingredient in Southern cooking, Turnip Greens have infiltrated Asian cuisines in stir-fries and savory soups. (OP.)

  • Information

  • The cornerstone of traditional Southern cooking and kitchen gardens, these leafy green vegetables include Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Kale and Turnip Greens. Customarily simmered for hours with salt pork or ham hocks, the best way to preserve their wonderful flavors, textures and color is to quickly braise or saute them in olive oil and Garlic. Most Southern Greens prefer cool weather, although Collard Greens are wonderfully tolerant of summer heat. Direct sow Collard, Mustard and Turnip Greens outdoors in the early spring as soon as the soil can be worked and in the late summer for fall harvest.

    Average seed life: 4 years.
