This is a traditional turnip that was being grown in Norfolk around 1680.
Turnips grown for seed should not be trimmed for eating. Allow individual pods to dry to a light brown color before picking and opening by hand. Lower pods dry first followed by those progressively higher on the plant. For larger amounts of seeds pull entire plant after a majority of pods have dried. Green pods rarely produce viable seeds even if allowed to dry after the plant is pulled.
Smash unopened pods in a cloth bag with mallet or by walking on them. Chaff can be winnowed.
Allow to dry and store in an airtight container.
