The swede (or neep as it is know in Scottish and Northern English) is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. The roots are eaten in a variety of ways, and the leaves can be eaten as a leaf vegetable.

Scotland and Ireland have a tradition of carving swedes/neeps into lanterns at Halloween.
