    Purple Vienna Kohlrabi - Vegetable Garden Seed

    Early White Vienna Kohlrabi, (Brassica oleracea var. gongylodes) has a nickname of Petra. Very similar to cabbage, this variety is much sweeter and creamier. The bulb is a pale green/white color, the stems grow big with large leaves, which can be a replacement for spinach. It likes cooler climates, but will grow in most zones. It needs full sun, but too much heat can dry them out. This annual is an early variety and is ready before Purple Vienna Kohlrabi.

    Does not require much water. Soil needs to be kept moist, but not over saturated. Weeds around Kohlrabi need to be kept under control, as they require a lot from the soil to grow properly. As it prefers the cold, gardeners in warmer zones, where there is no frost should plant in the fall for a spring harvest.

    Kohlrabi is great for cooking. It can be added fresh to salads, but the root needs to be peeled. Delicious baked, blanched, or pickled.
