I don't think I have ever had the small white and purple turnips. We always had the large yellow turnips that you now find coated in wax.

The rutabaga, swede (from Swedish turnip), or yellow turnip is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. It is not the same species as a turnip. I call the small purple and white ones summer turnips.

Etymology:

1799, from Swedish dialectal (West Götland) rotabagge, from rot "root" (see root (n.)) + bagge "bag" (see bag (n.)). Slang meaning "dollar" is from 1940s.
