Swedes and turnips are root vegetables. Swedes are larger with purplish outside and yellow flesh. Turnips are smaller and white with white flesh. They taste different. 

Apparently, in the north, people call swedes turnips. 

My question is-what do they call turnips?

Apologies if this confuses you further but in Scotland (the bits I've lived in anyway) the big purple ones are called 'neeps'  as in neeps and tatties with haggis (very tasty).  The wee, white-fleshed ones are 'spring turnips'.
