Kohlrabi (Brassica oleracea). Here’s a cabbage-relative with a difference: the main crop is the stem, which has been selected over the centuries to grow as an oblate sphere, about the size of an apple. Well grown, this stem is juicy and crisp, and tastes similar to a cabbage heart. The leaves are edible too, especially when young. This crop tolerates heat better than most cabbage relatives, and can be grown straight through the summer in most areas of the country.
Beautiful white kohlrabi with smooth skin, upright leaves and crunchy, juicy texture. Leaf attachment starts slightly higher up on the shoulder of the root, creating an overall cleaner appearance and allowing easier bunching without trimming. Named for the Danube tributary located in Austria and Germany. Uniform size · Excellent commercial variety · 3-5" bulbs (Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes). Maturity 60 days.
