Turnips come in all shapes and colors, from round to cylindrical and rose to black. They may be eaten raw or cooked.
How to Select
Select pearly, heavy turnips without soft spots and fresh leaves if still attached. Small to medium ones are sweetest.
How to Store
Store turnips in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for only a few days since they get bitter with prolonged storage.
