Swedes are a very common vegetable plant in northern Germany and were introduced in the 17th century from Scandinavia. Surprisingly, swedes are related to rapeseed plants and not just another typical edible root vegetable. Around the northern cities
Hamburg and Lübeck, a classic recipe with these green top rutabagas would be to prepare a thick, stewy soup with them in winter time.

The crops of the variety 'Gelbe Wilhelmsburger' are lovely round-shaped roots and their flesh is of the typical swede yellow.

Package with approx. 100 German green top rutabaga seeds

Growing instructions
