When to Plant Turnips? Early or Late & Not in Between
Turnips, like radishes, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, and kale are members of the Brassica family. All of these vegetables are cold weather crops. A little frost even enhances their flavor, making them taste even sweeter. Hot weather though turns turnips tough and bitter. So, plant turnips early or plant them late, but don’t plant them in mid-season in heat even with shade.
