Grown in Kentucky. I was cleaning the last of the collards out of the high tunnel, so I can begin planting for the new season. Found this turnip growing in the collards. Biggest one I've ever seen. Put my cap next to it for the sake of comparison.

My grandfather used to occasionally have turnips growing around his place. It seems like they would be in the ground year round. I'd occasionally dig one out, wash it off and eat it like an apple.

I pulled it and tossed it, as it's way too big to be any good to eat. I like a raw turnip every now and then, don't care for them cooked.

This is the way I am with beets. Hell I even tried to eat em in boot camp. They just got bigger the more I chewed.

Agreed Barry. I’ve never been hungry enough to eat a turnip.
I hate them.

I’ve never had a turnip. But I do like pickled beets. Especially when using them to make pickled eggs.

Love turnips and rutabagas. All root veggies.

That's an impressive one, but too big to eat.

Never raised any, the turnips, and radishes they use for cover crops have some big roots.

Europeans make a root vegetable mash that can include turnips. It almost always includes potatoes, with a few to several of these - celery root (celeriac), carrots, turnips, rutabagas. It is delicious. Have had it in several countries to include France and Belgium, where I found it to be quite tasty. Had it with rabbit in a wine reduction sauce in a sidewalk cafe in Paris and with homemade sausages in a small cafe in Brussels on a narrow alley way just off Grand Place.

The name the Europeans call the mash escapes me right now. I tried to recreate it once here, but wasn't able to duplicate that fine concoction. A coworker from France I worked with told me it was because I hadn't processed the celery root correctly.


No Ma'am. It's not my glasses that are crooked. It's my face.
