Swede Tweed

Swede Tweed. 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″).

Sow
May – June

Harvest
October – December

How to sow
Direct sow swede seeds outdoors from May to June. Grow Swedes in a weed free, sunny position in non-alkaline, light, fertile, well drained soil that has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow swede seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2″) in drills 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will usually take 7-10 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 23cm (9″) apart.

Companion planting
Try growing swede with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
