The red turnip bulbs are as healthy and nourishing as their white fleshly peers. Red turnips can be easily grown in home gardens and little vegetable patches. Turnips are a root vegetable with edible leaves. The little roots are used for human consumption and the bigger bulbs are given to livestock as feed. Turnip, although, is a cool-climate vegetable but it is quite sturdy and hence can grow in tropical regions during cooler months. The earliest record of the turnips dates back to the Roman times. In Asia and Europe, the earlier varieties of turnips resembled radishes and mustards. The turnip belongs to the family of Brassica and hence is closely related to radish. One can grow the turnip for its edible taproot and the turnip greens which are the leaves. Full of phytonutrients and offering a strong flavor, turnips are quite popular as a vegetable staple in temperate lands. The turnips are extremely low in calories and hence consumed without worrying about adding calories to your diet. Turnips are extremely rich in Vitamin C and dietary fiber and hence perfect for adding roughage to your food and detoxifying your colons.

Turnips can be cooked as a delicious vegetable, added to salads, soups, or simply eaten raw! However, if you are eating them raw, you may find their flavor a bit stingy but worth the sting. So get the best red turnip seeds from us and sow them away.
