    (have to focus hard to remember this isn't the word association game)

    I suppose Murphy can be cheerful that whilst someone stole the name of his law, at least it minimises his association with the expression.

    Strangely, both are marketed here as turnips, but what are called Swedes over there, are called Rutabagas in our stores. I prefer the little purple-white turnips, my wife prefers the larger rutabagas ( swede) but she has always called them turnips.

    I often wondered why aubergines were called egg plants. Then I saw them growing in Egypt (I think) and wondered why plants that looked from a distance as potatoes were festooned with white eggs.
    I've never seen them in the shops here. Has anyone else seen them in this form?

    Dave always said neeps were turnips.

    I like turnips (don't mind swede but don't have a heavy duty chainsaw to slice them with) but I haven't seen them in the shops for a long time

    I've seen them in Oxford, but only in the Chinese supermarket. Thoug I think a few seed catalogues now do white ones. Not sure how they'd grow outdoors in your neck of the woods - loads of lovely daylength, but the temperature might be a bit dodgy!

    I've seen some in London a bit like you mention., but you can but the seeds in the UK if you are into that sort of thing and have a greenhouse. So I've read the white versions absorb less moisture when cooking than purple aubergines, meaning they soak up less oil...resulting in a lower calorie dish

    One of these? I can't remember what the word was before egg on the label. They are sold in the Pakistani store I use.
    Not sure why I took the photo.:)

    Since I wholeheartedly dislike aubergines and marrows I avoid them.
