This unprepossessing egg-shaped veggie is a rutabaga disguised as a turnip. 1900s Vermont turnip farmer John Gilfeather discovered this veggie gold and worked hard at protecting his namesake variety. He never let a Gilfeather "turnip" leave his farm with roots or leaves intact lest someone propagate them for themselves. Even 100 years after his death the seeds are still a rare find. So, don't blow this "turnip's" cover! Keep the true identity of this mild and creamy veggie to yourself.
