Organic Plum in Tokyo Salad Turnip v.1

30-38 days to harvest Brassica rapa

Juicy sweet and marvelously mild, Plum in Tokyo is not your average turnip! Delectably tender and scrumptious in salads, about 75% of Plum in Tokyo are bright ivory with 25% beaming brilliant violet. No matter the skin color, each creamy white root melts in your mouth and, so magically, the purple roots often burst with burgundy at the center.

We love to harvest Plum in Tokyo between the size of a golf ball and a baseball, especially in the cool of spring and fall when they are lusciously tender and sweet. We savor Plum in Tokyo raw in salads, tossed on the grill, oven-roasted as well as a fabulous snack right in the garden.

A cross between Scarlet Queen (an F1 red salad turnip) and Hakurei (the F1 white salad turnip of our time), Organic Plum in Tokyo turnips mature quickly even in cool, short seasons and is a delicious bridge moving beyond the industrial plant expectations of our time. Snow in Tokyo is part of Fruition’s See(d)ing the Change project, as are are YOU! Together, we are sowing the world we dream of, where deliciousness and diversity are embraced, amplifying the beauty and abundance that is resistance as well as resilience. Learn more here!

We save their seeds — so can you, we hope you do! — and so can your great-great-great grandchildren, too ~
