This variety is superb raw, with a crisp, sweet, fruity taste. We eat it raw in salads or cooked in stir fries, pies and stew. Also adds a good flavour to stock. Hakurei has white, flat-round, smooth roots that matures, best harvested young, 5-8cm diam. The dark green leaves can be eaten raw or lightly cooked. 80 seeds.

A fast growing, superb eating Japanese Turnip.

The globe shaped roots have a white flesh and skin and maintain a sweet, mild, crisp flesh. Can be sown from spring to autumn, mature early and are slow to bolt. 150 seeds.
