Turnips, red are most likely a Japanese hybrid that we have not seen in any supermarket. See more about them below.
About Red Turnips
There are several varieties of red turnips. This variety appears to be a traditional or hybrid Japanese turnip. The roots or these varieties are semi-globed to more flattened with deep red or scarlet red skin with white flesh that is tender and crisp. They have a delicious, sweet to a mild radish-like flavor when harvested young to full maturity. This mild flavor makes these turnips great for eating raw on salads or cut in strips for eating with dips. If you come across them, try them; we believe you will also like them.
The turnip tops were already removed from these red turnips when we acquired them, so we could not identify the variety, but red turnip tops are all green with green or red stems. We could not find any detailed nutritional information for these turnips.
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
