Even if I get a lot of nasty comments now, I've been burning the question of how the turtle tastes for a long time. Until a good 30 years ago you could buy them in cans, but I'm too young for that. Has anyone had any experience in this regard? In various indigenous peoples, turtles are still on the menu and in Germany we ate almost all local Emys until a good 100 years ago.
In addition, I will immediately add the question of what the whole thing looks like legally. Is it legal to take a turtle you have brought yourself around the corner (to put it nicely) and eat it? Species protection is aimed more at the animals in the habitats than at their own offspring in the German garden.
Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to fry one of my turtles, but I’m curious.

I think the question is okay, although I had to swallow right at the headline.
I remember a friend of my husband's (he wasn't back then) had a can of turtle soup in the basement. I thought that was disgusting back then. However, I wouldn't eat snakes, frogs, isopods - either.
Some peoples do not eat cheese, they are disgusted with it.
I don't know what that looks like from a purely legal point of view, presumably you would simply not register the animals you eat yourself. In some countries where animals live that are protected by our species, the animals can be eaten there with impunity, but they can neither be imported live nor dead.
There are things that I don't even want to know. I'm not at all curious what cat, dog or human meat tastes like. I will also go into the Eleusian realms so blissfully. Amen!
I don't think your question is bad either. But I think it's the wrong people you picked for an answer;)
I don't think anyone will have tried this on a turtle forum.
