Cultivation: Kohlrabi prefers mild or cool temperatures. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in early spring or mid/late summer. To avoid sowing during summer heat, start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before planting outside. Transplant in full sun. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Optimum growing temperature is 60-80°F. Since the thickened stem grow above ground, kohlrabi is a good choice for areas with root maggots. For microgreens, broadcast seeds on soil and cover lightly. Keep uniformly moist. Harvest by cutting when seedlings reach 3-4".

Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Kohlrabi is a great substitute for turnips. Use in stews, soups, stir-fries, or eat fresh. Use microgreens as garnish or in salad.
