Veggie Type: Root, cruciferous 

Season: Harvested in the fall but sold most of the year 

Peak months: August-November

Uses: The rutabaga is one of the stranger root vegetables. It’s the product of a cross between cabbage and turnips, and it has a sweet, mild flavor that kind of tastes like both. Try it roasted or, if you’re feeling ambitious, as vegetable-noodles.
