When to pick

Early turnips are delicious when picked at golf ball size. Leave other varieties to grow larger and they will have a stronger taste, and can turn woody.

Eat and store fresh

Eat baby turnips as soon as possible. Store larger ones in the fridge for 1 week, leave in the ground until the first frosts, or harvest and cold store (clamp).

How to preserve

Turnips can be used in pickles and chutneys.

Freezing options

Freeze as a cooked purée and keep for up to 9 months.
