Kohlrabi - Array - Brassica oleracea (Gongylodes groups)
Annual 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 productive variety that dates back to the 1860's.
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.

I got great germination rates. I tried direct seeding on year and starting in trays another and had much better results with trays. I got them in the garden a bit late but the plants still grew well. Kohlrabi is really delicious barbecued.Review by Stephanie (on 8/7/13)
