Kolibri Kohlrabi

50 days. Kids love Kolibri! This Kohlrabi variety looks a bit like an alien vegetable from an alternate universe: it is bright purple on the outside and white on the inside. We love to munch Kolibri raw, just like an apple: the sweet, juicy crunch of this bizarre Brassica must be experienced to be believed. Kolibri forms a slightly flattened globe that tolerates heat well. Harvest between 4" to 6" high, grate coarsely and toss with a tangy, ginger-citrus-honey vinaigrette for an unforgettable purple and white slaw with attitude! (F1.)

One packet of about 70 seeds

  • Information

  • This Teutonic Brassica, legend has it, came to us via Attila the Hun. Kohlrabi is loaded with nutrients (including calcium), has practically no calories and is just about impossible to find at the market. Kohlrabi tastes like a cross between a Radish and a Cucumber, with a dense texture and a great crunch. Sow in spring and/or in the late summer for fall harvest. Harvest on the small and sweet side; the leaves are perfect for stir-fries, so no part is wasted. We love it the old-fashioned way: steamed lightly, then baked in a cheesy-cream sauce (try Edam or Gouda for a change) until piping hot. Excellent comfort food to store away in the freezer for the winter.

    Average seed life: 2 years.
