Turnips are edible roots that range in size from 5 to 20 centimeters. The most frequently encountered commercial Turnip is ivory to white in color, with a distinctive purple ring around the stem. The roots soften and develop mellow earthy, nutty, and sweet flavors when cooked.
Turnips have a crisp, starchy flesh when raw, but soften and become velvety when cooked. Turnip greens have a flavor similar to mustard greens and are high in vitamins C and K.
