Marco was bred in Europe and is very similar to Barkant, but has a high resistance to bolting, and in trials is up to 10 days earlier maturing. Marco has a 50:50 leaf to bulb ratio and has high Club Root Resistance, and therefore can be sown in the same paddock 2 years in succession. Marco should be sown a little heavier that most turnips because of its large seed size. Maturity is 10-12 weeks.
