Rutabaga is a root plant that’s known by many different names. It’s a mixture between a cabbage and a turnip and it has some of the qualities of both of these. The roots are eaten in a variety of ways and the leafs are also useable but less frequently so.
They are also used to feed the livestock either directly or by being foraged in the fields used for grazing. In the UK they are also used for carving for Halloween.
