Ratings & Reviews

Kohlrabi- Purple Vienna

TheSeedCollection Response
It can be eaten raw or cooked. Steamed, fried, grated, salads, stews, soup. It's from the same family as cabbage, turnip, etc, you can use it in a similar way you would use any of these.
Can someone please advise how to cook this

Wonderful germination rate and the flavour is great!

Great flavour

Great flavour. Leaves can be harvested and used in stir fries or anything you would use cabbage in as the flavour is very similar.
