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.
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.
