|Turnip Seeds - 'White Egg' Be the first one to write a review|
Vegetable Description: White Egg turnip seeds were first sold in the Boston store of John B. Russell in 1828. Expert gardener William Woys Weaver says of White Egg, "The flesh is snowy white, tender, and very juicy, since there seems to be a higher water content in this turnip than in many other varieties. The flavor is somewhat sweet, and so mild that the turnip can be eaten raw, at least when fresh from the garden. In storage, the flavor intensifies."
