Ancestral variety widely cultivated in the United States in the 19th century. Its skin is white and the aboveground part is bright purple. Its flesh is white, firm and sweet. It produces roots with a width of 7 to 10 cm. Very resistant to cold. The leaves, slightly pungent when young, are delicious pan-fried, steamed or in soups, in addition to being an excellent source of vitamins.
The vast majority of our seeds are produced on our farm. However, if the cultivation of a variety fails or if it is out of stock, we source from other seed companies to ensure an interesting selection. This is the case for this variety.
