A few days ago I mentioned that I’ve decided kohlrabi is an inefficient vegetable to grow in limited space (like our 10 x 20 plot). Today I discovered hakurei turnips, thanks to our resident master gardener, Nancy. How could I not have known about these gems before? The root ball is the same size as the edible part of kohlrabi, and the flavour and texture are similar. But!!! They use less than one quarter of the space, they produce edible tops for cooking, and they take an amazing 35 days to maturity according to the West Coast Seeds catalogue. Perfect for succession planting.
