Joan Rutabaga, organic VRU-5212



People are rediscovering the rutabaga

Partly because it's related to kale and shares many of the same health benefits, and partly because of the flavor and versatility.

Sweet mild flavor and crunchy texture make these a kids' favorite for raw dipping.

Likewise a hit shredded into slaw or winter salads. Kids (and we) also love them creamed, or mashed half and half with potatoes. Really shines when roasted, alone or with other winter vegetables.
Joan combines outstanding flavor with resistance to clubroot. Oh, and did we say that you can eat those kale-related leaves, too? BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica napobrassica


Plant 8" apart in well-composted soil with some ability to retain moisture. Make sure that there is adequate calcium, organic matter, and potash for best flavor and keeping qualities. Matures in 13 weeks. Leaves are edible but taking too many will rob the root development, so go easy. Foliage may also be steamed and frozen when roots are harvested. May be stored in a root cellar or the ground for winter. Easy to grow and will stand in the ground for a long time.
