May Turnips are white and very small. They can be round, averaging 1 1/2 to 3 inches (4 to 8 cm) wide, or long, 3/4 inch to 2 inches (2 to 5 cm) in length.
They are mild enough to eat raw in salads, or you can cook as a vegetable. They are considered a delicacy, as are Teltow Turnips.
They are generally available from May to June.
