Description
 
Market Gardener Jason Horner grew this variety out for us as a seed guardian. This was one of his favourite crops as the Tipperary Turnip did not suffer from Boron deficiency on his land to the same degree as other varieties. On his commercial veg. plot the 3 rows took up very little space and made great forage for his bees when flowering. The 200 or so plants yielded us with a great quantity of seed. A native cultivar of swede returned to us from the Wellesbourne gene bank. Like other native Brassicas it is hardy and disease resistant. It has a delicate, mellow, sweet flavour, still remembered by many of the locals. The flesh, says Andrew Williams, is not tough at all and keeps well through winter.
