Farmers' Market Report for February 1, 2013

Pink Turnips
Grower: Coastal Organics

Description: Baby Pink turnips have both edible roots and greens. Each root is attached to three to four deep pink stems that flow into strap shaped, vein-textured green leaves. The roots are globular and average about one to two inches in diameter. The exterior color of the root is magenta pink while the flesh is variegated with bleeds of translucent white and pink colors, similar to that of a radish. Baby Pink turnips have a unique flavor compared to other turnip varieties. They have a noticeably milder flavor with balanced sweetness and subtle notes of pepper. Though, the flesh can be considered tender compared to common larger varieties, it offers a crunchy succulent texture.  ……..<<Read more about this item>>
