Swede

Turnips and swedes are both members of the Brassica family and are closely related to each other – in fact their names are often confused. In Ireland and Scotland, swedes are traditionally referred to as turnips – they are known as neeps in Scotland. Swedes are a globular root, yellow and purple in colour with yellow flesh. They have a milder flavour than turnips.
