Juicy sweet and marvelously mild, Snow in Tokyo is not your average turnip! Delectably tender and scrumptious in salads, we love to harvest Snow in Tokyo between the size of a golf ball and a baseball, so tender and sweet in the cool of spring and fall. We savor Snow in Tokyo raw in salads, tossed on the grill, oven-roasted as well as a fabulous snack right in the garden.
A cross between Tokyo Market (an open-pollinated white salad turnip) and Hakurei (the F1 salad turnip of our time), Organic Snow 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!
