john mchale asked 14 years ago

I planted swede turnips in April and some of them are growing a large stem with a yellow flower. Is this normal.also the turnips seem to be flat underneath unlike other types?

Swede turnips are rounded and usually purple-topped, so it the turnips are flat, they are possibly a mix-up with seed varieties and not the winter swede.

The yellow flowers means they have bolted, which would be unlikely for swedes until after winter, not before.
