This standard home garden and market variety is open pollinated. The thickened stems have a uniformly deep purple skin and a crisp green-white flesh. For best flavor and texture, harvest when stem is 2.5" in diameter. Stems become fibrous with age. Also popular as microgreens because of its purple stem color.
Cool season annual
Approx. 1000-1500 seeds in packet. (A seed will vary in weight and size within a given seed lot. The number of seeds stated is only an estimate.)
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.
