Kohlrabi - Array - Brassica oleracea (Gongylodes groups)
Annual Heirloom. Kohlrabi is a little known yet delightful vegetable with mild broccoli-like flavor. Texture is of a juicy radish. Can be eaten raw, pickled, or cooked. Purple Vienna is a wonderful variety for garden or market production that dates back to the 1860s.
Soil & Water: Provide plenty of water and a well drained, soil rich in compost.
Planting & Growing: Direct seed as soon as ground can be worked in early spring or late summer. For the best quality, plant in time for a fall harvest. Kohlrabi will withstand light frost.
Harvesting & Storage: The edible portion of kohlrabi is not the root, but rather the round, swollen stem of the plant. Leaves are also edible. Harvest when stem swells to 3-5" and is easily visible above the soil.
