Grew reasonably fast BUT then the slugs got them. Give them a try again.
purple top milan
Saturday, 12 January 2013 | Brett
i grew purple top milan on my allotment last year i scattered the seed under a fleece unfortunately when the turnips came through it was hard to pick them out from the weeds which also came through (the amount of rain kept me away)
but they did not bolt i had some really big very tasty juicy turnips + they did not all come at once either they seemed to stagger them selves i was eatnig them for a few months it was even possible to eat with out peeling just scrubbed which looked decorative on the plate
