Turnips are a popular root vegetable of European origin related to the cabbage and radish. Melissa’s Turnips are beautiful light to vivid purple near the turnip greens, fading to a bright white. Inside its delightful thin skin is the crisp white fleshy root. Although turnips sometimes have a yellowish flesh, the majority are bright white. Turnip leaves are slightly hairy, yet still edible, called turnip greens. Enjoy fresh turnips just as you would a carrot, a delightful substitute! Melissa’s Turnips are quite tasty backed with grated cheese or in a cooked salad.

When selecting Melissa’s Turnips look for well-formed, similarly shaped roots. Turnips should be smooth, hard and free of soft spots or sprouts. Refrigerate, unwashed in a plastic bag up to 10 days.

Turnips should be scrubbed with a brush under running water, prior to use. There is no need to peel or cook if the skin is thin.
