Superschmelz is a giant variety with white and light green flesh. Slow to bolt, it is capable of reaching a whopping 8kg in weight and 25cm in diameter. With the stem just above ground level, it swells to form the crisp, juicy vegetable with a texture very similar to the Water Chestnut. Its flavour is much like that of a turnip but milder. Requires a very rich soil and plenty of space to reach gigantic proportions.
Sow seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2") deep in rows spaced 30cm apart. Alternatively sow two seeds per cell in modules under glass at 13°C. Sow seed in succession to prolong the cropping period.
