With a slightly bitter-but-sweet flavour and spicy greens, turnips are a wintertime treat. Use our guide to make the most of them.

Optimal Storage

  • Do not wash until ready to use.
  • Separate from their green tops (otherwise the greens will draw out moisture).
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, unless a root cellar is an option.
  • Store the greens as you would hearty greens in the refrigerator.


  • Wash, peel and chop, blanch, cool, and pack in an airtight container.

Root to Fruit

  • Turnip greens are edible. These have a great spicy flavor and can be quickly sautéed or steamed.
  • Turnips do not need to be peeled before eating.


  • Turnips can be pickled.
