Our Favorite! (85 days) Brassica napus x Brassica rapa Open – pollinated. This white – fleshed heirloom has put Wardsboro, VT, (population 900) on the culinary map. At the end of October each year, Wardsboro hosts a festival at which Gilfeather is served in all the dishes. Although it has come down in folklore as a turnip, it is really an interspecies cross between a rutabaga and a true turnip, big – knobbed and bulky with small hairy tendrils growing on its light green skin. It was either developed or discovered by John Gilfeather in the late 1800s. Did I mention this is our favorite for eating hands down?
