Purple Vienna Kohlrabi (Brassica oleracea) - 100 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•Sow spring for summer harvest
•Sow late summer for fall and winter harvest
•USDA Zones: 3-10
Purplish leaves and globes with mild turnip-cabbage flavor. Leaves are eaten like kale and white-fleshed bulbs are eaten like broccoli. Plants grow to 18" tall, with globes growing above the soil. Plant in early spring for a summer harvest and again in late summer for fall and winter harvests. Harvest bulbs when tennis-ball sized.
Direct sow early April until mid-May for a crop to mature in about 8 weeks. Sow again mid-July to early August for fall and winter crops. Planting between mid-May and mid-July causes them to mature in hot weather resulting in inferior bulbs. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 50-85°F. Seeds should germinate in 7-10 days. Sow seeds ¼” deep with plants spaced 4-6″ apart in rows 12-18″ apart. Ideal pH: 6.0-6.8. Kohlrabi is a moderate to heavy feeder that does best in humus-rich soil amended with composted manure. Mix ¼-½ cup complete organic fertilizer into the soil under each plant. Spring-sown kohlrabi will get larger than tennis balls in fair soil, but if you pick them when they are still less than 2-3″ in diameter they will be sweet and tender. Fall-grown kohlrabi can grow larger yet stay tender. Kohlrabi is frost-hardy and may last well beyond Christmas in the garden.
