Rutabaga is a cool-season vegetable grown for its large root, which is also called Swedish turnip. A natural cross between cabbage and turnip, its yellowish root and smooth leaves distinguish it from a true turnip. It also tastes sweeter. Try it steamed, baked, or eaten raw. High in vitamin A. Makes a great fall crop as frost will make the root even sweeter. Plant 24 inches apart.
