Description: This is a very stunning looking red skinned, white fleshed turnip with a red mandala inside the white flesh. It has been in our collection for many years and is an heirloom from Asia. It is great raw or cooked, also stunning for lactic pickling, as the red skin dyes the entire jar bright pink! Leaves are very edible too.

Planting Instructions: Sow into seed trays and prick out at 2.5 cm spacing when first leaves appear. Transplant when 6-8 cm high at 10 cm diagonal spacing.
