Turnips are very similar to radishes, both in terms of looks and how we grow them. They have white roots with green foliage which matures so quickly that you can harvest turnips twice in a season. 

Start with germinating seeds in a paper towel (See here how to use the paper towel method for seed germination). Once they sprout, transplant the young seedlings into soil and move them to a place where they can receive 5-6 hours of direct sunlight. 

If you’re growing multiple turnips, keep them at least 3-4 inches apart. This space will allow each turnip with enough room to absorb nutrients and water from the soil. Speaking of water, ideally you should water your turnips 3-4 times every week. 

Soon you will have fresh turnips growing in your kitchen. But if you wish, you can taste the delightful flavors of turnips within 10 days. Turnips microgreens come with the same rich flavor with extra nutrients. We also have tons of other microgreen seeds that you can try as well. This link will take you right there.
