Turnip or Swede

Post by MrBlueSky » November 21, 2017, 3:53 pm

Does anyone know where I can buy a turnip or swede in Udon Thani? I have tried Villamarket and Topps but neither sell them. Also looking for chipolata sausages.

Thanks in advance.

The Royal Project Store website has a page on turnips......but whether they're available in Udon, not sure. The RPS store is on the bottom floor of Central, near the book stores.

Seeds for turnips and swede are available on a variety of Thai websites, including http://www.ubgarden.com/product/880/%E0 ... 8%E0%B8%94

Last time we bought Swede was in Villa Market, needed it for Cornish Pastys, unfortunately they have not had any for quite some time, my wife actually ordered some a few days ago, so when she gets the call that they are in, I will update you, I may add they were very expensive compared to UK Pprices, never seen a turnip.

Turnips and swedes like rhubarb are seasonal and out of season right now.

They had swedes about one month in Makro, but with no luck. I believe it was a test, but timing was bad. Like in Finland we use swede to make Christmas dinner and it is not yet time for that.

Price was about 400+ thb/kilo. Those were packed as one kilo per pack. I would have bought just for test, but not whole kilo. Now they have returned those and not selling anymore (at least over one week not found those).

If you want those from Makro, they take orders. I have ordered i.e. grapefruit juice for me, because they do not stock it. Other Makro branches do. Same with swede etc. Turnip size swede costs about 150 thb.

Turnips are widely available in most supermarkets and markets.

They don't look anything like UK turnips (they are like white oversized carrots) but they taste the same.

Many thanks for the info'

I'm happy, though, to think of them as Thai turnips because their texture and flavour is indistinguishable (to me) from UK turnips and have now used them many times in stews and casseroles.
