The autumn beet / turnip is a close relative of the garden turnip / spring turnip and both are very similar in appearance.
The autumn beet / turnip gets its name from the late year harvest time: they are sown in summer and harvested in autumn.
The autumn beet / turnip is white on its lower part, while the green of its leaves turns purple in the sunlight. The autumn beet / turnip and the garden turnip / spring turnip are often confused, since they resemble some varieties of the garden turnip / spring turnip which also turn purple on the upper half. However, the tubers of the autumn beet / turnip are slightly larger and flatter at the root part. Lanterns are often made from hollowed-out autumn beets / turnips.
The flesh is white in both types of these root vegetables; although the autumn beet’s / turnip’s taste is tarter than that of the delicate garden turnip /spring turnip. In terms of substances, there are similarities between both of these root vegetables: both have a relatively high carbohydrate content for vegetables.
Season: from September to December
