The seeds have an average of 4 years. Turnips will grow with a vast height and eventually flower. You may be required to stake them. The seeds tend to mature, but only when the pods are dry. Either harvest the individual pods or the entire stalks. After, place them in bags as seed or on to a tarp only in the morning when plants are wet with dew. Use an eighth of an inch screen to aid in cleaning and ensure they are stored in a cool dry place. Ensure they are planted in full sun, they can tolerate partial shade.
