There are those people who have been avoiding turnips in the grocery stores. But on the contrary, they don't know that turnips are the easy-to-grow root crops in the same family as cauliflowers and cabbage. In the first year of the turnips' life, the plants produce a rosette consisting of green basal leaves growing on long petioles. In shape, they resemble a lyre, and the stem foliage is egg-shaped with a jagged edge. The turnip blooms very beautifully with small petals of a bright golden yellow or pale matte yellow color.
