This yellow fleshed swede is an improved variety of
a commercial swede developed in America. It has
become the standard swede in USA since 1920.
American Purple Top has mild, yellow, fine-grained,
firm flesh which is best harvested in the 100-150mm
range. It was selected for its short neck, globular shape
and sweetness. It is very delicious in soups, stews,
casseroles and especially prized when baked.
It stores well and is an excellent source of Vitamin C
The young leaves can be used as a green in salads
and stir fries. This variety matures in around 110 days.
Swedes like a soil that has been pre-prepared
with lots of organic matter. The soil must be well
drained, as for most root vegetables. This is in
order to prevent root rot. If drainage is an issue
consider raised bed gardening for this crop. The
seeds should be sown1cm deep and 12-20cm
apart in rows 30-50cm apart. Sow in Sep- Apr in
both Cool and Temperate areas and Aug-May in
the Subtropics and from Mar- Sept in the full Tropics.
