Turnips

We grow several different varities of turnips.  The wonderful Hakarai turnip, available in the spring, is sweet and crunchy like an apple with a subtle turnipy flavor, is best fresh.

In the fall, we have gilfeather and purple top turnips, perfect for fall stews and warm dishes.  They have a stronger turnipy flavor and are good for cooking.

Availability: 
June, July, September, October, November
Storage tips: 

Store turnips in the fridge wrapped in a bag.  For long term storage, they can be stored dirty in grain sacks in a cool dry place that will not freeze.

Cooking tips: 
Slice hakurei turnips into salads. Fall turnips are great in soups, stews, roasted or baked.
