    Turnip is the edible tap root of the Bressica rapa plant. Turnips were a well established crop in the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations which implies that its cultivation may have begun much earlier than that.

    The commonest type of turnip has a white surface with a pinkish end which is the sun exposed part of the tap root. They can vary from spherical to conical in shape, and the flesh inside is entirely white in color. Turnip leaves are also edible and are commonly known as “turnip greens”.

    The turnip root is a rich source of Vitamin C while turnip greens are high in folate, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Calcium. A 100 gram serving contains only 22 calories, so you don’t have to feel guilty digging into a bowl of stewed turnips. Common methods of preparation include stewing, steaming, and pickling. Baked turnips can be used as a low calorie alternative to French fries.

    Turnip is shown to have many health benefits including reduction of  joint damage and the risk of arthritis and osteoporosis.
