From Bakker Brothers, which offers this description; "Basra is an early hybrid in the Nantes type. The 15-20 cm long roots are, like Tip Top, smooth and cylindrical. However this hybrid colours internally early and rapidly and is therefore very well-suited for the early vegetable market. During the 14-18 week period from sowing to harvest it developes a uniform crop giving a heavy yield. This hybrid's excellent internal and external colour makes it very suitable for processing. "
