We grow turnips in the spring and fall.  The spring turnips are fast-growing and tender, often with very tender (and edible) leaves.  The spring turnips are very tender and can be eaten raw in salads, or cooked.  The fall turnips can also be tender, but can also be more robust and tough (these are the ones that have white bottoms and purple tops) – these purple-top fall turnips should be cooked.
