Turnip greens

Description and features

Cima di rapa is a typically local vegetable, which belongs to the Brassicaceae family; the inflorescences of the turnip top are consumed.

Turnip tops have very few rivals; from a nutritional point of view, as they are a real mine of vitamins, mineral salts and rich in sulforaphane, a chemical compound that has a powerful anti-cancer action.
