Additional Information



Harvest Recommendations

Plants started in midsummer for fall harvest will withstand light fall frosts and develop superior quality produce. Light frosts will control insect pests allowing for fewer insect problems upon harvest.

The edible portion of kohlrabi is the rounded, swollen stem that develops just above the soil line. Harvest kohlrabi when the stem widens to two inches. The fruit will become tough and fibrous if allowed to mature too much.

Crops planted midsummer for fall harvest generally have fewer insect problems and a less bitter flavor.

Storage and Preservation Methods

Best used fresh and will keep for up to a week if kept cool. Kohlrabi can also be frozen.
