If you're not sure whether you like turnips, try an early variety, which are picked when golf ball-sized to be eaten raw (e.g. grated in a salad) or snooker ball-sized for cooking (e.g roasting) - they have a subtly sweet flavour. If you already know you like them, the good news is that you can be eating some part of a turnip for most of the year. The larger and hardier maincrop varieties are suitable for use over the winter and the leaves ('turnip tops') are a delicious spring green.
