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.
