My sole kohlrabi that made it from my spring planting. It's a Super Schmelz and HUGE!


Just for kicks and giggles, I'm letting it go just to see how large it will actually get.

Yum! I love kohlrabi! My spring planting was a bust, so I've got lots of seedlings that will be ready to transplant as soon as some squares open up. 
Mostly purple and a few super Schmelz.

To me, they taste kind of like broccoli/cauliflower. We peel ours and sort of treat it like a potato? You can steam it, then mash, or dice it. You can put them raw in a stew like a potato. Roast etc. I love them. I tried them raw, and they're just OK. We put the leaves in our smoothies too Smile

I either roast them with other root vegetables for a side dish or chop and put it in soup like I do with turnip.

My new try this year!  I have a choice of 9/SF or 5/SF, depending on the folks that shared on this thread...thinking 5?  I want the bulb.  Not gonna be into the leaves.  I can’t do (eat) Kale so I am gonna give a purple variety a try...still shopping!
