Product Overview

Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes

Curiously shaped, this crisp, mildly sweet member of the cabbage family is splendid in salads, slaws, and stir-fries. A good source of nutrients.

Because of its turnip-like appearance, kohlrabi is sometimes misclassified as a root vegetable. Leaves stand out like little spokes on the sides and top of the edible, enlarged stem. You'll welcome not only kohlrabi's unusual shape, but also its crisp texture and wonderful, delicately sweet, nutty, and very slightly peppery. Eat it like an apple, or try it steamed, sautéed, or pickled, too! One cup contains 140% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.

Variety Info

Enlarged, bulblike portion of stem forms just above soil surface. Flavor is between an apple and a mild turnip. 'Purple Vienna' has a reddish-purple, slightly flattened globe with tender white interior.

Sowing Inside

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, and 10 to 12 weeks before your average first frost date, transplanting in 4 to 6 weeks.

Sowing Outside

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date, or when soil temperature is at least 45°F, ideally 65°–80°F. Also sow in late summer for fall harvest. Mild Climates: Sow in fall and winter for cool-season harvest.
