The pearly-white roots on these Aquaponic Bunched Tokyo Turnips are mild, sweet and much juicier than the larger turnips varieties like Purple Tops. The roots are delicious served raw in a salad, or simply steamed or roasted whole. The delicate greens are edible too! They have a slightly spicy kick to them, and are great steamed or added to soups.
Ouroboros Farms is a commercial Aquaponics Farm in Half Moon Bay and Pescadero. Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture (the raising of fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants in water). We feed our fish Organic Fish Food which becomes nutrients for the plants. This method of food production has several advantages. Because both nutrients and water are always available to the plants, they grow up to 30% faster, can be planted up to 10x more densely, and use only 5-10% of the water required of a similar sized soil farm. In other words, we can grow upwards of 20 times as much produce with the same amount of water!
