Brassica napus
SWEDE-AMERICAN PURPLE TOP-RUTABAGA was introduced before 1920 & was renamed American Purple Top a 10 – 20 years later. Purple Top Yellow is the original name & I will be using it in future. This swede produces large, round, yellow roots with a purple crown. Fine-flavored flesh is firm, sweet & turns orange when cooked. Superb quality traditional swede, will do & taste better in cooler areas. This easy to grow variety matures in approx 90 days. Self-sows freely. Always expects moist soil & is attractive to bees & butterflies. A vegetable that is great for winter storage. Swedes are related to turnips, created by a natural cross between cabbage & turnip. Compared to turnips, swedes grow larger, thanks to their cabbage heritage & require a few weeks longer to mature.

Sow the seed thinly, lightly cover with a little soil. The seedlings will take about 10 days to emerge. Thin the seedlings out to about 25cm apart. Keep them well-watered & well weeded and you should have no problems.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
