As for shape - some swedes are sort of egg-shaped rather than round - just the way they are. Is that how yours are GWRS?
Zoomer - I may be mistaken here, but I believe that the French don't consider swede to be suitable food for humans and its not grown there (other than on farms as fodder for cattle). So I suspect that your seeds may be turnips which are very popular in France.
I would point out that I consider the French to be mistaken - I will be tucking into my 'bashed neeps' (mashed swede) tomorrow with my haggis and leeks.
