  2. The rutabaga (from Swedish dialectal word rotabagge) A 'Swede' or 'neep' in Scotland. It's a cross between a cabbage and a turnip.
    They can resist very hard frosts while the turnip cannot which is useful in northern countries like Sweden and Scotland.

  3. A couple of weeks? Our family used to store rutabagas in the root cellar all winter, and they weren't even waxed. They store really well over long winters
