Turnip originated from Europe and was transmitted to Korea through China.  It has been cultivated for over 2000 years, but it still preserves its primitive form.  

In general, its leaves are shaped in long ovals that look like eggs.  Some of the leaves are long with sharp ends or feather-shaped.  

In spring, Turnip blooms yellow cruciferous blossoms.  The shape and size of its roots vary by species, but they are mostly rounded.  

Turnip is generally white in color, but some are crimson-colored on the outside or into the core.  

Turnip is nutty and tastes like mustard or ginseng.

It is a popular vegetable and the large ones are used in feeding livestock.  Red turnip has crimson-colored roots.  Other kinds of red turnip include edible beet or red radish.  

Turnip is similarly cultivated to radish, but is mostly seeded in late summer and harvested in late fall or early winter.  It can be grown in any time of the year, except for hot summer, and can be harvested in 3-4 weeks.
