When to plant:

  • If you are in a colder area, sow your rutabaga seeds after the danger of the last frost has passed.
  • If you are in a warmer zone, plant your seeds in the fall and harvest in the winter.

How to plant:

  • Sow your seeds ½ inch deep and about 2-3 inches apart.
  • Thin the rutabagas out when they are around 4 inches tall so there is between 4-6 inches of space between each plant.

When to harvest:

  • Rutabagas are best harvested before they get to be as large as the ones you see in the grocery stores.
  • Both the greens and bulbs can be harvested to eat - you can cut the greens off (without disturbing the root) when they are over 4 inches tall and the greens will regrow.
  • Harvest the bulbs when they are at least 3 inches in diameter, depending on the variety of rutabaga.
