Germ 7-10 days
We were very impressed with this kohlrabi from a prominent Dutch grower. If you start from transplants, this and kale will be the first cole crops you harvest in just 40 days from transplanting. Exterior is an attractive medium purple and the interior a crisp, clear white. Flavor is fine, delicate for kohlrabi. We continued harvesting over a 7 week period and by the end, the size of the globes exceeded 1lb, and were not at all woody. 40 seeds
Outdoors- Early spring, 1/4” deep 2-4” apart with soil temps 55 degrees. Mid/ Late summer sowing for fall harvest
Harvest- The spring plantings under 2” for the most tender and sweet bulbs. Fall plantings can survive frosts and can be harvested when they are larger.
Tips- Grows best in the cooler weather of spring and late summer. Summer heat makes the bulbs woody and dry. Provide fertilizer and adequate moisture for optimum growth.
