These white Japanese turnips are popping up in farmer's markets and are incredibly popular. They have very little spice and can be eaten raw straight from the garden. They are also wonderful sliced in salads or pickled. Last season we trialed three open pollinated varieties against the market standard hybrid Hakerei. We found the Tokyo Market to be virtually identical. The greens can be eaten as well! Truly one of my favorite garden foods!
