KH436A - Konan Coated
This uniform and vigorous hybrid has large, light green bulbs and firm white flesh. These can reach 15cm (6”) wide without losing any flavour or light texture. We grew this All America Selection Winner in our summer field trials, and it was a hit. The upright leaves are resistant to insect damage, so each one in the row looks perfect, which is good news for market growers and home gardeners alike. The upright shape means that Konan kohlrabi is suitable for container growing. We tried it in raised beds and in the trial field, and there seemed to be no impact on performance, uniformity, or flavour.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
This close relative of the cabbage was bred over centuries to develop a flattened meristem. Sometimes referred to as German turnips, kohlrabis are very rich in vitamin C, and a great source of potassium. The flavour is like a very mild cabbage and the texture is crisp and crunchy, a bit like that of a pear. Great in salads or eaten raw.
