A superb Scottish purple-topped, globe swede, which stores well. The roots stand clear of the ground and have an excellent sweet flavour. This is the last time we will be offering the variety as it has been registered as a conservation variety on the UK National List
Translated means “yellow Swedish”; this very old variety, commercially available since the 1800s, was lost during the 1960s, but the Swedish Seed Savers, SESAM, have conserved it since then. The yellow roots are green-topped and have a slightly oval shape. Found to have good resistance to club root.
Originally from Stanley, Falkland Islands, but passed to HSL via Chase Organics who thought the variety would be of interest to us. It has been grown in Stanley since the 1940s, always organically, and it is believed that they were originally supplied by Bees Seeds, Liverpool. It produces round bicoloured roots with crisp, orange-yellow flesh.
