Rutabaga vs Turnip

  1. 1

Vegetable of the Month- the Rutabaga

Also known as ‘yellow turnip’, ‘neep’, and ‘swede’.  Often mistaken with a turnip- but not the same. . .

Here are a few differences:

  • the turnip has been a staple food for a long time, whereas the rutabaga was actually developed in the 1800’s. 
  • Rutabagas are actually a cross between a turnip and a cabbage
  • Rutabagas are generally larger than turnips; they also store better
  • Rutabagas have a sweeter flavour than most turnips
