Swede Tweed F1
British bred culinary Swede with hybrid vigour and uniformity, growing very well in less fertile soil making it the perfect home gardener’s choice. Globe-shaped, purple topped, with cream skin and tasty cream flesh of fine texture. Ideal for late autumn harvest.
Sow thinly, 1cm (1/2in) deep in drills 38cm (15in) apart in soil that has been raked to a fine tilth.
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 15cm (6in) apart. Keep plants well watered and hoe regularly. Roots can be stored in damp peat for winter use.
Harvesting Period: September onwards
