- The Purple Top White Globe is also known as the traditional American turnip with a white coloration below the soil line and purple above.
(57 days) 1881 D.M. Ferry Catalog says... "A variety of the purple top flat turnip, from which it originated. We are inclined to think that this new variety will in time be as largely used as the purple top flat turnip is now. It is globular in form, and quite as large as the Pomeranean White Globe, of beautiful appearance, of most excellent quality, and equally desirable for table or stock. It is undoubtedly a fine market sort, and keeps well."
