Kohlrabi Growing Information
Kohlrabi is a hardy biennial grown as an annual. Kohlrabi is grown for its swollen base which is actually the plant’s stem. The globe-shaped base develops above the ground. Kohlrabi is a good choice for gardens that don’t have deep soils.
Varieties with white, light green or purple skins are available. Both the globe base and leaves can be eaten.
Sow kohlrabi seed in the garden 3 to 4 weeks before the last average frost date in spring. Kohlrabi grows best in cool temperatures between 4°C and 24°C). Kohlrabi requires 45 to 60 days to reach maturity. In warm winter regions, sow kohlrabi in late summer for winter harvest. Kohlrabi can withstand an early autumn frost.
