Kohrabi Winner

If you’ve never grown Kohlrabi before you are in for all kinds of wonderful surprises! For establish kohrabians, you will be smitten with the sweetness of ‘Winner’! The delicious 3-4” cabbage-green bulb grows above ground and just watching its bulbous, alien-baby-esque form developing is a fascinating and irresistible delight. Kohlrabi is a member of the cabbage family, but you’d never know by its sweet and slightly peppery taste or its apple-like texture. In fact, most Kohlrabi lovers peel and eat them raw, just as they would an apple or a radish! But they are also wonderful roasted to a caramelized state as a side dish, made into sauerkraut, or stewed and blended into a fantastically creamy soup for cold Winter nights. The leaves, like collard greens, are edible too! Grows quickly to 12”x6”, needing moist fertile soil - so give it a balanced fertilizer and consistent water. Harvest when the bulb is no larger than 4” for peak sweetness.
