RUTABAGA

Rutabaga

Rutabaga is believed to be a cross between the turnip and cabbage, and to have originated during the Middle Ages in Europe.

Rutabagas are known as 'Hanovers' in some parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland and possibly Pennsylvania.  Some sources mention 'Hanover Salad' as a subspecies of rutabagas.  In 'The American Language' (1919), H.L. Mencken mentions Hanover county, Pennsylvania as a possible source for the name.
