What is Turnip?
Turnips are a root vegetable with leafy green tops that grow up to a foot or so. The leaves are edible, but the round shaped root is the part most commonly eaten. Turnips can be as small as a gold ball and more commonly are slightly smaller than a tennis ball. They have a dense and woody texture when raw. Their skin is light purple at the top and blends into white. Each radish has a tail that is usually removed before eating. The inside of the vegetable is white and when cooked becomes cream colored and tastes sweet and earthy.
