Rutabaga or Swedish differs from turnips (Brassica rapa) in that they are generally larger and more yellow-orange than white. In northern England and Scotland the larger yellow turnips are called Neeps or Swedish in popular etymology, while the smaller white turnips are called Neper.
The difference between Sweden and turnips becomes clear when you see the two side by side. Nepen is smaller, softer and rounder than the Swede. Beets have whiter flesh than Swedes. The Swedes hailed from Sweden and were known as the Swedish turnip and this name was shortened to Swedish.
To add to the confusion, Swedish is often called turnip or turnip in Scotland, and turnip has the same name. The word Nepe actually comes from the Scottish word Nepe. However, Americans call Swedish a turnip, which comes from the Swedish word rotabagge.
The beetroot comes out a bit, but the amount of sugar may need to be increased as Swedes are generally sweeter. Make sure the pieces are very small.
Turnips are usually white with a white or white and purple skin. Rutabagas generally have yellow flesh and purplish-yellow skin and are larger than beets.
Sweden has a variety of health benefits due to its excellent source of vitamins and nutrients. These healthy vegetables are particularly rich in vitamins C, E, K, and B6 and are also a good source of manganese, potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, carotene, and fiber.

Swedish is also known in Scotland as Swedish turnip, Russian turnip and neep.
You bet! They are low in calories but high in nutritional value. Beets are rich in fiber and vitamins K, A, C, E, B1, B3, B5, B6, B2 and folic acid (one of the B vitamins), as well as minerals such as manganese, potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium and copper .
Swedish is round in shape with purple skin and the flesh is yellow-orange with a sweet, earthy flavor. It melts easily if cooked for too long, so always stick to cooking times.
Although eaten all year round, haggis is particularly associated with Burns Night when traditionally associated with neeps and tatties (Scottish: Swedish, turnip or kohlrabi and potatoes, cooked and mashed separately) and a dram (i.e. a glass of Scotch whiskey) is served.
In northern England and Scotland the larger yellow turnips are called Neeps or Sweden in popular etymology, while the smaller white turnips are called Neper.
Top up with enough cold water to almost cover the pieces. Add the butter and salt, cover and heat over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until the swede is soft, stirring occasionally.
To prepare the swede: a potato peeler is enough to peel it just like a potato and first cut the end of the root with a knife. Then simply cut the swede into pieces of the appropriate size.
Simply put, neep is short for beetroot. But be careful. In most English-speaking countries, beets are small, white-fleshed root vegetables. It is usually spherical in shape (more or less) with a thin skin.
Although they actually resemble a kohlrabi, the two are often confused, but the turnip is smaller and more like a cabbage and radish cross with a sweet, slightly spicy flavor with a crunchy white inside. Eaten raw they have a very bitter taste, but cooked they are sweet.
Turnips (Brassica napobrassica) taste a little sweeter than turnips. A quick rule of thumb is yellowish beets and less white and purple beets. Kohlrabi is also called Swedish turnip or Swedish turnip, yellow turnip and neep. Many people simply call them turnips.
napobrassica, called rutabaga in the United States, but never called turnip. Kohlrabi is a Swedish corruption for cabbage. Beets and Swedes both belong to the cabbage family and are closely related, so closely related that it is not surprising that their names are often confused.
