  • Kohlrabi does best in cool weather with abundant moisture to prevent the edible portion from becoming tough and woody.
  • Plant your seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before setting outside. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked and after last frost, and autumn planting done in June, July, or August. Plants grow 9 – 12″ tall.
  • Thin to 10 inch between plants when large enough to handle.
  • Requires fertile soil in a well-drained location in the garden. Apply mulch and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.
  • Water well during dry and hot spells.
  • Harvest when bulbs are 3″ in diameter.
