Brassica oleracea
Early White Vienna Kohlrabi (55 days)

Kohlrabi was first introduced sometime just before the Civil War.  Three varieties appeared later in the 1884 D.M. Ferry Seed Catalog. 

Obviously Kohlrabi has made an impact on gardeners and chefs alike as it has stood the test of time.  Kohlrabi is actually a member of the cabbage family, but the edible part is actually an enlarged stem.  Best harvested when the stem reaches 2-3 inches. Many people use the young leaves in salads or steamed. 

This variety has a light-green skinned exterior, white interior, and is a bit smaller than the Purple Vienna Kohlrabi, but with a slightly faster growth rate. 

Plant kohlrabi in rich soil about 1/4 inch deep.  They love moisture once established and will benefit from an ample side dressing of compost.  Continue to sow every 2-3 weeks for a continuous crop. 

Kohlrabi is a good source of Thiamin, Folate, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Remove the rootlets and leaves for winter storage.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Kohlrabi:

Start seedlings 4-6 weeks before your last frost date.  Keep seeds moist for best germination.  Transplant outside when soil reaches aproximately 45 degrees.  A cool season crop, spring and fall plantings are best.  Can overwinter if well mulched.  Staggered plantings will ensure a good harvest through april. 

Heirloom seeds are hardy, but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
