Brassica rapa

Turnips were once the most popular choice for home gardens, and for good reason. They're easy to grow, and once you start using them in your cooking, you'll never look back. These cabbage relatives grown for their spicy greens and mild tasting roots. The roots are a good addition to salads, pickled, or cooked in soups, stews, and side dishes. Or try them boiled and mashed in with potatoes. They add a sweet note to whatever dish they're included in. The greens are a classic cooked with ham or bacon in Southern dishes. Or add them fresh to salads or toss a few handfuls, chopped, into a stirfy.

Turnips grow best in cool conditions, so plant them early in spring or in late summer for a fall crop.
