I have read that you can eat the turnip tops - cook like spinach perhaps? The leaves have to be young and if you want, apparently, the best from the turnips; harvest when between golf and tennis ball size. I guess if you are using them in a stew, cooked for some time, they could be larger.
I want to just slice and steam for a short time, so will be harvesting them quite small.
...and then again there is a carpaccio of turnip; sliced wafer thin, raw, with a dressing
