KH437A - Purple Vienna
Purple Vienna kohlrabi is an old heirloom variety that has always enjoyed its status as one of the standards for the home and market. Purple skin covers faintly greenish-white flesh with superb flavour. The tops are small, and the leaves are both colourful and edible. Just treat them like you would kale. Harvest the attractive purple kohlrabis at 6cm (2½") in diameter for the finest texture. Direct sow in early spring for a summer harvest, and again in August to harvest in the cool weather of the fall and winter. This is the most economical kohlrabi to use for microgreens, and their flavour is exceptional.

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.
