Brassica oleracea (Gongylodes group)

Item #0177

55 days. It may look like a space alien has landed in your garden, but you’ll welcome not only Kohlrabi’s unusual shape (a great conversation starter) but also its juicy, crisp texture and delicious flavor in salads and slaws. Also try it steamed, sautéed or stir-fried. Its flavor has been described as similar to apples, mild turnips, broccoli stems, radish and cucumber.

This packet sows three 10-foot rows.

Days to Emerge:
10-14 days

Seed Depth:
1/4"- 1/2"

Seed Spacing:
A group of 3 seeds every 4"

Row Spacing:
12"-18"

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


When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as the soil can be worked. Also, in late summer for fall harvest.

When to start inside: 4-6 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Smaller kohlrabi is the sweetest and most tender; harvest when 2" to 3" in diameter. "Bulbs" much bigger than the size of a tennis ball won’t be as tasty, and often have a pithy or woody flesh.
