Turnips are creamy-white with a lovely purple, red or greenish upper part where the taproot has been exposed to sunlight. They are a great source of vitamin C and a good alternative vegetable to a potato.

Baby turnips are the size of large radishes and have a sweet, delicate taste, while winter turnips are more pungent and peppery. Turnip leaves or ‘greens’ can also be eaten boiled, steamed, stir-fried or grated into salads.
