The Giant Trentino Ancient cabbage Turnip is one of the marvels of the vegetable world.  Joe discovered this amazing vegetable that has all but been forgotten at a rare vegetable seed exchange in northern Italy.  The editor of a regional countryfolk association for the Northern Italian region of Trentino.  According to Plinio Pancirolli of the organization, the "Naone Rosse Trentino Antica" has been raised in the area of Trentino for over 2000 continuous years and there is the historical records to substantiate that information!  Plinio and his colleagues claim that the cabbage turnip , actually Brassica oleracea, and not Brassica napa (Turnip) is so sweet and delicious that it is eaten raw just like a splendid Kohlrabi! The Giant Cabbage turnip is something of a wonder and will grow anywhere kale and cabbage will grow!  Try some and continue this ancient Italian tradition!

Review:

I ended up with this plant accidentally. I must have ended up with one stray seed somehow. There was this lone HUGE purply turnip-looking thing in the garden that grew up a couple of years ago. I couldn't figure out what it was so I left it. It sort of looked like a turnip but nothing like I had ever seen before. It grew about 3/4ths the size of the picture above. It then went to seed like a brassica, hm. I saved the seeds, of course. So this past fall I planted a handful of seed in a neglected part of the garden to taste it this time. Sheep ate all the stray volunteers outside the garden fencing. Tonight I pulled two of them up. Turnip? But I HATE turnips. Oh, well, I cut them up into a pot of chicken broth along with carrots and herbs etc. Oh, MY. My taste buds went to heaven! I am allergic to nightshades and I SO miss potatoes. These were a creamy golden yellow and the texture of cooked potatoes and ever so tasty. Not a hint of bitter. Lightly sweet. Plant some!
