The strangest looking cabbage you will grow to love. Although the name roughly translates as cabbage turnip, this is all cabbage; it just looks a bit like a turnip. The bulby part isn’t even the root, it’s the stem.

Like other cabbages the whole thing is edible. Young leaves can be eaten raw in a salad or lightly cooked in a stir fry, older greens can be cooked like mustard greens or collards.

The bulby stem is the real star of the show. It is crunchy like an apple or cucumber and mild in taste like broccoli stems. Add raw slices to add crunch to a salad, grate it in a slaw, or try it baked, roasted, or fried.
