What is Kohlrabi? I've never seen it in my life! What does it taste like? Well, let's find out!
According to Burpee (https://www.burpee.com/gardenadvicecenter/vegetables/kohlrabi/all-about-kohlrabi/article10029.html) Kohlrabi prefers rich, well-drained soil in full sun. You can plant this cool-season crop for a spring or fall harvest in the North, or for a winter harvest in the South.
For a spring crop plant the seeds outside after danger of a hard frost: sow in midsummer for a fall crop, or in fall for a winter crop. Space rows 12 to 18 inches apart. Thin the seedlings to 4 inches apart when they are large enough to handle. You can also grow kohlrabi in containers.
What is Kohlrabi Plant History? This relative of kale and cabbage has a flavor similar to turnips. It is grown for its bulblike stem, which grows above the ground.
Kohlrabi Harvesting Tips: Kohlrabi is best when the bulbs are about 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Harvest the foliage when it is young and tender. Well then! Only one way to find out how they taste, and how they grow. Put them in the ground! I planted seeds on 9/20/2020. It germinated in 5 days! It takes about 60 days to harvest.
