Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, this top quality swede is a winner for its extra sweetness. Swede Ruby has dark purple-skinned globe shaped roots with creamy yellow flesh and is a really useful winter vegetable. Excellent winter hardiness also shows good resistance to Powdery Mildew.

Sow April-June outdoors (4-10 weeks maturity) onto finely raked soil or compost, firm down and keep damp but not too wet. Seedlings will need thinning out to approx. 45cm apart.

Average packet contents 650 seeds.

Make several sowings for continuous crops.

To enjoy that extra sweet mashed swede with butter this is the one.
