This was a popular variety commonly grown in the north and given to us by John McCormack of Co. Down. It grows quite upright, ‘high’ on the surface thus not prone to soil pests like eel worm. Good purple colour, sweet tasty flesh and hardy through the winter. Many grow to a good size. If you prefer small Swedes, delay the sowing and planting until the very end of June.
