You'll welcome not only kohlrabi's unusual shape (which is a great conversation starter), but also its crisp texture and radish-like flavor in salads and slaws. Try it steamed, sautéed, or pickled, too! Its texture has been compared to apples, and its flavor is described as delicately sweet, nutty, and slightly peppery. Very high in Vitamin C.

Family: Brassicaceae

Native: Europe

Hardiness: Biennial, grown as an annual

Plant Dimensions: 10"–12" tall, 8"–10" wide

Variety Information: Enlarged, bulblike portion of stem forms just above soil surface. Flavor is radish-like, between an apple and a mild turnip. 'Purple Vienna' has a reddish-purple, slightly flattened globe with tender white interior. 'White Vienna' is similar in shape and habit but is light green on the outside.

Attributes: Good for Containers

When to Sow 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.

When to Start 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.

Days to Emerge: 10–14 days

Seed Depth: ¼"–½"

Seed Spacing: A group of 3 seeds every 4"

Row Spacing: 12"–18"

Thinning: When 2" tall, thin to 1 every 4"

Harvesting: Smaller kohlrabi is the sweetest and most tender; harvest when 2"–3" in diameter. Those much bigger than the size of a tennis ball won't be as tasty and often have a pithy or woody flesh. Harvest by cutting stems between the soil and where the stem widens.
