Turnip -

The root of a plant largely grown in every temperate climate. It ranges from the size of an orange to forty pounds in weight, and from varieties which are popular as a table vegetable, either separate or mixed with others in soups and stews, to types that are grown exclusively for feeding cattle. The most delicate flesh is found in medium-sized white turnips of good strain, but many people consider such roots insipid, and prefer the more strongly flavored yellow types. They should always be firm to the touch when purchased. The season usually commences in June.

Young turnip tops generally make good "greens." The tops of sprouted white turnips are excellent for salads, needing hardly any vinegar.
