Salad Turnips

Salad Turnips


The white Hakurei Salad Turnips we grow are a cross between a radish and a turnip.  They are best sliced and eaten fresh.  They have a sweet, crisp, flavor with a very mellow radish-like bite to them. 


Storage and Handling:

Tear off leaves if they are still attached and store in a loosely closed plastic bag for 3 to 5 days.  These are a delicious tender early spring green that can be cooked up with a little garlic and olive oil. 


Store salad turnips dry in a plastic bag in your refrigerator crisper drawer for up to a week.  Before using, rinse under cold water and gently scrub to remove any lingering dirt.


Culinary Uses:

Salad Turnips are wonderful when eaten raw in salad or alone.  They can also be lightly sautéed in olive oil with a little onion and/or garlic, boiled, steamed, and roasted.
