How to Grow: Rutabaga are similar to turnips, but plant for fall harvest. Plant 8-10 weeks before first fall frost, seeding 1″ apart in rows 12-16″ apart, thinning to 8″ apart. Thin within a month–crowded seedlings won’t bulb properly.

Harvest: Harvest when roots are 3-6″ across. Harvest before temperatures drop below 20 degrees F

Cooking: Mash rutabagas and potatoes together for a hearty dish.

Packet: 2g (approximately 900 seeds) sows 46’.
