Our kohlrabis haven’t been a huge success. We got a couple of nice ones, the rest have thick stalks but no real bulb. Still edible, but maybe 1/10th of the fleshy goodness of a normal kohlrabi. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I’ve read kohlrabi doesn’t like transplanting (I grew seedlings in potting trays), it wants regular water (mine mainly had to put up with what fell from the sky), they should be at least 6 inches apart (mine are maybe 4) and they like loose, rich soil (got that). I also read that wind can stress them. Seriously? Anyway, I’ll try again but if anyone has any suggestions, let me know.
The leaves are fantastic though. Beautiful big deep blue/green with purple veins. We use them in cooking like spinach or cabbage. And we feed them to the chickens.
We harvested this kohlrabi to share. Frank and I get the stem, the girls get the leaves.
