The Turnip Seven Top, 'Brassica rapa', is grown for the greens. There simply are no other greens that have as much calcium as turnip greens. They are tasty when steamed, stir-fried or in salads. Seven Top does not grow a turnip root. It puts all of its energy into growing the best turnip greens you have ever tasted. There are not many greens more nutritious and tasty.Plant in early spring, 3 to 4 weeks before the last frost or when ground temperatures reach 45 degrees. Successive plantings every 3 weeks until mid-summer can provide continuous greens. Seven Top prefers well drained soil with lots of organic matter. Greens can be harvested when young and tender, usually about 6 inches tall or so.
