Bred as a culinary swede. Swede Brora has attractive reddish-purple shiny skin and cream base, with fine grained, well-flavoured, creamy yellow flesh, free from any bitterness. Swede Brora is best harvested late autumn up to New Year. Excellent storage qualities. Prefers a rich, well manured soil.
Companion planting: Try growing swede with nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
