Kohlrabi - White Vienna - Brassica oleracea (Gongylodes Group)
Hardy Biennial Heirloom. Enjoyed in the U.S. since the 19th century, kohlrabis have a juicy, cabbagey flavor. Grow White Vienna kohlrabi along with Purple Vienna for colorful combos of these unusual vegetables raw in salads, or cooked. White Vienna (also called Early White Vienna) is slightly smaller and slightly faster maturing than Purple Vienna, with a milder flavor.
Soil and Water: Provide plenty of water and a well drained, soil rich in compost.
Planting and Growing: Direct seed as soon as ground can be worked in early spring, or in late summer. For the best quality, plant in time for a fall harvest. Kohlrabi will withstand light frost.
Harvesting and 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.
