Sugukina

Brassica rapa subsp. rapa


Sugukina
Seed #580
Sugukina turnip is a traditional vegetable, dento-yasai, in Kyoto Japan. The production of this vegetable is in the area of Kamigamo, Kyoto. While it can be eaten fresh like any other turnip, its main use is for pickling. Suguki pickes (Sugukizuke) have been produced for generations in Kyoto for over 300 years. Most recently, researchers have started to become interested in Sugukizuke for its reported flu-fighting properties.

Culinary tips: Sugukina is best pickled. Pickles will be be mildly sour. Use in soup, salad, pickle or stir-fry. Asian turnips are mainly eaten when very young. They can be eaten raw with a dressing or added to stews and curries. The young green tops are stir-fried or used in soup.
