Kohlrabi. Funny little vegetable. Here’s how to keep it nice and tender and delicious.

I don’t grow a lot of kohlrabi, but it is a definite staple in my garden each year! It really doesn’t require much care from me…I just need to keep the plants watered consistently so they produce meristems (the main part you eat) that don’t become woody in texture. Unless you are growing the giant varieties, harvest the plants before the meristems get outrageously large so that they remain tender. I like to peel, then slice kohlrabi into strips and eat it raw (so good!), or boil it and mash it in with new potatoes and a little bit of butter or drizzle of olive oil. Did you grow kohlrabi this year? What are your favourite ways to eat it?

  1. We don’t grow it or eat it ourselves. My in-laws are the only ones who grow the vegetable, in our families, that I am aware of.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
