Turnip Seven Top is a variety of turnip that is known for its high yields and easy maintenance. It is a popular choice among gardeners and farmers alike due to its cold-hardiness, short growing season, and quick maturity. This turnip variety produces large, round roots that are ideal for roasting or boiling.

The Latin name for Turnip Seven Top is Brassica rapa L. var. rapa. It belongs to the Brassicaceae family and is a member of the Brassica genus.

Here are some tips on how to grow Turnip Seven Top from seed:
• Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep in well-drained soil in early spring or late summer.
• Place seeds 6 inches apart in rows that are spaced 12 inches apart.
• Keep soil consistently moist during germination and throughout the growing season.
• Thin seedlings to 4 inches apart when they reach 2 to 3 inches tall.
• Harvest roots when they reach 3 to 4 inches in diameter, usually about 60 days after planting.
• For best results, use fresh seed each year as stored seed will not germinate as well.

Turnip Seven Top is a relatively easy crop to maintain, but there are a few things you should keep in mind:
• Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer just before planting and again 3 weeks after emergence.
• Water regularly during dry periods and mulch around plants to retain moisture and discourage weeds.
• Control pests such as aphids, flea beetles, and cabbage loopers with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
• Rotate crops every year to help reduce disease pressure and maintain soil fertility.
• Remove any diseased plants as soon as possible to avoid spreading the disease further.

Turnip Seven Top is an excellent choice for home gardeners looking for a reliable crop with high yields and easy maintenance requirements. With proper care and attention, this variety will produce sweet, juicy roots that are perfect for roasting or boiling!
