"The Giant Turnip" or "The Enormous Turnip" (Russian: Репка) is a children's fairy tale of Russian or Slavic origin. It was first published in 1863 in the collection Russian Folk Tales, edited and published by Aleksandr Afanas'ev.
It is a progressive story, in which a grandfather plants a turnip, which grows so large that he cannot pull it up himself. He asks the grandmother for help, and they together still cannot pull it up. Successively more people are recruited to help, until they finally pull the turnip up together. The specific ordering and set of people and sometimes animals varies. It is also a popular Nursery rhyme.
