Sugukina

Brassica rapa var rapifera


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.
