Turnips are very hardy and 

can be planted in early spring or late in summer.

Best flavor when they grow fast, so provide adequate water, loose soil, and some compost. 

Forgiving of poor soil. It works well to plant at 2-week intervals, so that you have a succession of fresh, young crisp roots. 

Just as easy as radishes, with a fuller, sweeter flavor. Tasty roots and greens.
