Rutabagas are an excellent nutritious late-season root crop that can easily be stored in pits or moist sand in the cellar for 3-4 months. Larger and hardier than the common turnip, with a richer texture. Though they can be harvested after a frost, their keeping quality will suffer.
Roots can be boiled, steamed, baked, fried, or mashed. The leaves can be used as a potherb.
