This rutabaga has been around for a few hundred years. We proudly offer Heirloom, Non-GMO seed. Grow these like you would a turnip and they will hold up in the garden well and store for months. Rutabagas have a better flavor than turnips, and we recommend not letting them get bigger than a softball. Most places they go in early summer, but in zones 7b and higher these will do great as a fall crop. Happy growing!
