Purple Vienna Kohlrabi

Purple Vienna Kohlrabi Seeds

This under appreciated member of the Brassica family should be a garden staple, it is easy to grow and tastes delicious. Harvesting Kohlrabi can begin as early as 9 weeks for baby vegetables or let mature till 12 weeks.

Cold and frost tolerant and able to be grown in pots. Sow direct or in punnets.

While Purple Vienna is said to sometimes be sweeter than its white cousin, more often than not the taste is indistinguishable and selection is based on colour preference.

Health & Culinary Notes

  • Highly nutritious with more vitamin C than oranges.
  • This is a true multipurpose vegetable, boil and serve with butter, mash, slice raw into a salad.
  • For something a little different, coat cooked kohlrabi in egg and breadcrumbs before frying.
