Turnips are one of the most productive root vegetables that we grow at Tumbleweed Farm. We mainly grow the Japanese variety (Hakurei) for their undeniably sweet flavor and creamy texture. However, the larger purple topped white globes are also a great variety with a stronger flavor. Turnip greens are also edible and are lovely sautéd with a little butter and garlic. Turnips roots can be eaten raw with a little sea salt and a dab of butter for a simple snack or roasted until tender and caramelized. This lovely root is versatile, delicious and deserves a place on your dinner plate!


Spring, Fall, Summer, Winter

Cooking Options
