Turnip (shalgam)

Turnip Also known as Shalgam.The turnip or white turnip (Brassica rapa var. rapa) is a root vegetable commonly grown in temperate climates worldwide for its white, bulbous taproot. The most common type of turnip is mostly white-skinned apart from the upper 1-6 centimeters, which protrude above the ground and are purple, red, or greenish wherever sunlight has fallen. The interior flesh is entirely white. The entire root is roughly conical, but can be occasionally tomato-shaped, about 5-20 centimeters in diameter, and lacks side roots. Most very small turnips (also called baby turnips) are specialty varieties. These are only available when freshly harvested and do not keep well. Most baby turnips can be eaten whole, including their leaves. Baby turnips come in yellow-, orange-, and red-fleshed varieties as well as white-fleshed. Their flavor is mild, so they can be eaten raw in salads like radishes.Chopped turnip- Place the peeled and washed turnip on a chopping board and chop it into small pieces.
