About

Our summer turnips provide a flush of colour in veg boxes, either blushing pale pink with a creamy white underside, or a more vibrant pink all over. Whichever colour you get, they can be used in the same way, and both taste just as good as each other.

Not to be confused with winter turnips, these have a succulent tenderness and peppery sweetness. We think they’re at their best grated, sliced or cut into matchsticks and eaten raw in salads (a bit like a radish). Also very good pickled or fermented. A versatile veg, they’re also happy roasted or in stews.

Storage

Summer turnips will stay firm in the fridge for a week or even two. As with carrots and beetroot, any leaves are better removed or they will suck moisture from the veg. If they’re in good nick, you can use the leaves in stir fries or wilted into stews.
