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 a member of the cabbage family, but the edible part is actually an enlarged stem.  Best harvested when the stem reaches 2-3 inches in diameter. Many people use the young leaves in salads or steamed. 

This variety has a purple skinned exterior, greenish white interior, and is a bit larger than the White Vienna Kohlrabi. 

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.

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.
