What Did My Garden Grow? Help Please!


Hi Friends,
I was out picking tomatoes, the last of the red ones, and cleaning up the garden.  I had planted an eggplant, a plant I purchased at Lowes in the spring.  It obviously wasn't an eggplant.  I thought it was quite odd that it never produced any blooms and I figured that even though it still looked quite green it was too late in the season.  I might as well pull it and get rid of it.  What a shock!

Not an eggplant at all, but a root of some sort.  I really don't know what it is!  I'm 99% sure it is edible yet I don't want to eat something unless I'm 100%.  Anyone know what grew here in my garden?  The top of it is a purplish color.

Thanks for the help!
Blessings,
Nancy
Seriously, anyone want to come over for some tomatoes.  I have double what is in the picture and tons of green ones.  Come have a cup of coffee or tea with me and I'll send you home with a bag of them!

Is it a turnip?

I'm far from an expert but I just googled images of Celeriac (or that is what we call it down here in Australia anyway lol)....I think it kind of looks like that.

Hopefully someone knows for sure!!

I wonder if it is a Kohlrabi. It kind of looks like the pictures I have seen.
