chou-navet blanc écrasé ou aplati


Explanation:
Information rencontrée dans le Shorter OED: Neep = synonyme de *swede turnip*. Du Grand dictionnaire terminologique: botanique alimentation légume white rutabaga (a) Contexte(s): Although the yellow varieties were formerly considered the best, the new white rutabagas of the Macomber strain are of finer quality than the old yellows, as the flesh is very sweet and fine-grained. (a) Synonyme(s): Swedish turnip (bcd)
swede (cdefgh) Note(s): So called from its having been introduced into Scotland from Sweden. (e) swede turnip (f)
Note(s): Sometimes capitalized S. (e) Swedish cabbage-turnip (i) Russian turnip (b) winter turnip (b) rooted turnip (d)
Autre(s) langue(s): Brassica napobrassica (Latin) (cf) Brassica napus var. napobrassica (Latin) (dfgh) Note(s): ((Dans la source citée, l'entrée se lit comme suit :)) Brassica napus Linnaeus var. napobrassica (Linnaeus) Reichenbach. (g) Brassica oleracea var. napobrassica (Latin) (f) Voir aussi: rutabaga turnip
chou-navet blanc n m (l) Note(s): En français, le terme chou-navet» désigne à la fois le chou-navet blanc (à chair blanche) et le rutabaga (à chair jaune). Au Québec, c'est ce dernier qui est le plus cultivé. Le chou-navet blanc, comme le rutabaga, se distingue du navet par un collet situé au sommet de la racine et autour uquel se rattachent des feuilles d'apparence lisse, alors que le navet ne présente pas de collet et que ses feuilles, velues, se rattachent directement au sommet de la racine. (l) Terme(s) à éviter: rabiole (jk) Note(s): Le terme «rabiole», qui est encore largement utilisé au Québec, n'a pas été retenu parce qu'il prête à confusion, ce terme pouvant désigner à la fois le chou-navet blanc et le plus souvent le chou-rave. (l) Le terme «rabiole» dérive du terme «rabo» qui signifie «rave» en provençal moderne. (kl) navet blanc (m) Voir aussi: rutabaga navet

Explanation:
Some additional explanation of *bashed neeps*, found at the Website listed below. "The Scottish actually ate turnips willingly with their haggis (which they also ate willingly), but they referred to them by the rather pugnacious name "bashed neeps." (Turnips word for turnip, napus, which also gave rise to the French word navet. The prefix turn refers to their spherical shape.)" [ I think the etymology must be rather fanciful, but the association with the Scots is well confirmed: I found a lot of sites listing *Highland night* and *Burns suppers*]
