Grown as a Fall crop in this area. Hardy and easy.

People seed it the first week of August for a harvest that can last most of the winter.

Seven Top is an ancient cultivar grown solely for greens. The root is woody and inedible. In the New River Valley, I was plagued with cabbage root maggots which usually did a number on turnips. Seven Top was sufficently resistant to produce greens. I prefer Purple Top even for greens, but where it succumbs to root maggots, Seven Top comes through.
