kohl rabi (Brassica oleracea)

  • Kohlrabi is a brassica and has cabbage like leaves. It is known for its distinctive swollen stem that looks a bit like a turnip.
  • Both the leaves and the stem can be eaten, but it is normally the stems that are available on the market.
  • It has a fairly mild cabbage taste with a watery texture reminiscent of celery.
  • It is a useful ingredient to bulk up raw food recipes, without overpowering the taste.

  • If you don't know it, then you should. This is well worth growing as it comes ready right at the start of summer when there aren't many other vegetables available.
