Rutabaga, American Purple Top (Brassica napus) - 200 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 3-9
When to sow is highly dependent on your zone. If you are in a colder area, sow your rutabaga seeds after the danger of the last frost has passed. If you are in a warmer zone, plant your seeds in the fall and harvest in the winter. Those in the middle can sow in the summer for a fall crop. Leaves can be harvested and eaten when young, but roots take approximately 90 days to mature, and they become tastier and more tender after the first or second frost. Rutabaga should be planted in early to mid-summer depending on your zone, generally about three months before the first expected frost date. In warmer southern climates where the ground doesn’t freeze solid, it is also possible to plant before the last frost date in early spring for a first round. But keep in mind that hot weather can make roots taste bitter and woody.
Sow your seeds ½ inch deep and about 2-3 inches apart. Thin the rutabagas out when they are around 4 inches tall so there is between 4-6 inches of space between each plant.
