Rutabaga (Brassica napobrassica)

The rutabaga is a relatively modern vegetable that resulted from a cross between a Swedish turnip and a cabbage. The rutabaga's flesh is yellowish, and it's taste is milder than that of the turnip.

Storage Tips:


  • Rutabaga will store adequately at room temperature for up to one week, or refrigerated in plastic bag or hydrator drawer for up to one month
  • For longer term storage, rutabagas may be packed in moist sand and kept in a cool but not freezing location
