Sow kohlrabi seeds in well-worked soil after danger of frost in spring. In frost free areas, sow in fall. Sow thinly in rows 18" apart and cover with 1/4" of fine soil. Firm lightly and keep evenly moist. Seedlings emerge in 14-21 days.
How to Grow
Thin to stand about 4" apart when seedlings are 1-2" tall. Provide kohlrabi plants with at least 1" of water weekly. Do not plant cabbage family crops in the same place 2 years in a row.
Harvest the foliage when bulbs reach 2-3" in diameter and foliage is still young and tender. Eat the stems fresh or use them as a spinach substitute. Use the bulb fresh or cooked. If using fresh, peel the root prior to using. If baking, can be peeled or left unsliced depending on the recipe.
