British bred for hybrid vigour and uniformity, Swede 'Tweed' grows particularly well in less fertile soil making it the perfect choice for the home gardener. The globe-shaped roots have attractive purple shoulders, and tasty cream coloured flesh of a fine texture. This superb variety is ideal for a late autumn harvest. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 25cm (10").
Companion planting: Try growing swede with nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
