Turnip is a versatile and nutritious root vegetable that belongs to the Brassicaceae family. Turnips are known for their distinctive round or cylindrical shape and their crisp, white flesh. They are widely cultivated and consumed in various culinary traditions around the world.
The flesh of a turnip is crisp, tender, and slightly sweet when young, but it can become more earthy and pungent as it matures. Both the root and the greens (turnip greens) are edible. The greens have a similar taste to spinach or mustard greens.
