A popular Italian variety, Milan Purpletop turnips produce excellent yields of succulent roots that are white beneath the purple top.



Milan Purpletop turnips are fast growing, with creamy-white roots and bright purple shoulders. They are quick to mature and ideal for planting in the early spring, as they’re ready to eat before many other crops. Their taste is sweet and mild, which makes them ideal for salads and coleslaw. They also taste amazing when cooked like potatoes: boiled, roasted, or mashed.

The greens of these turnips are also quite tasty and boast an impressive array of vitamins and minerals. Use in stir-fries, soups, and casseroles.
