Strange Foods

Purple Kohlrabi.

First taste.

Peeled, sliced, eaten raw as well as added to spicy garden salad.

Like a sweeter radish with a slight broccoli taste.

Will plant more of these.

Nutritional. (How could it not be, being a cousin of broccoli and kale?)

    I love kohlrabi. It’s supposed to be good cooked in a variety of ways but nothing beats raw. I peel it and then eat it like an apple. One of these a day (or 2 or 3) surely helps keep the doctor away.

    But I’m jealous – I’ve failed miserably at getting such a perfect bulb like you have in the photo. I’m pretty sure I didn’t supply a good, constant watering (they like water). I’ve got new seedlings in the ground – I’d like to keep these things coming good all year round.

    Laura –
    Drip irrigation on a timer seemed to work well for these (although the rutabaga drowned a bit next to them). They were small but then again this is a smaller variety.


    Note made. Thank you.
