Brassica rapa var. rapifera, Japanese Turnip

Kabu, Japanese Turnip 'Kobaku' Type
 Brassica rapa var rapifera

This is the first time I have grown these small white Japanese turnips. They were ready to harvest about 30 days after planting the seed. The flavour is exceptional and they can be eaten raw as they are very sweet and mild flavoured. The green tops I have added to salads and used as a stir fried green. Because they are only small plants, they would be very suitable for growing in a container.
