Turnips grow best on moderately deep loam, fertile, and slightly acidic soil. Tolerant of partial shade and temperatures down to 40°F, avoid grounds that are wet/poorly drained. Turnips will winterkill in temperatures less than 25°F.
Soil pH: 5.5 – 7.5
Optimum Growth Range: 45°F – 90°F (prolonged exposure greater than 70°F will slow growth)
