Kohlrabi - Seeds & Bulbs

Purple & White Vienna Blend

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 crisp, juicy flavor in salads and slaws. Also try steamed, sautéed or stir-fried kohlrabi. Kohlrabi means 'cabbage turnip' in German, and its flavor has been described as similar to apples, mild turnips, broccoli stems, radish and cucumber.
