Kohl rabi / Purple Vienna -Seeds

Kohl rabi / Purple Vienna -Seeds Image

Kohlrabi is an attractive and unusual addition to the vegy garden and to the table.

The edible part is the fat Turnip-like stem just above the soil level.

This is best eaten when not much larger than 7.5cm in diameter.

It has a pleasant 'dim sum' flavour served raw in salads, stir fried for Asian dishes or you can cook them like Turnips, but we have not tried it that way yet.

The purple stems of this old heirloom variety are always a conversation piece.
