Q.Growing Turnips

Anonymous added on March 15, 2014 | Answered

Last year when we grew some turnips in our garden they sized up very well but they were very woody near the root system. Is there something I can put in the ground to stop this problem?

This happens to turnips when they are left in the ground too long. The best way to avoid it is to harvest the turnips a little bit sooner. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/turnip/harvesting-turnips.htm
