Kohl Rabi 'Green Duke'

kohl-rabi-green-duke

Kohlrabi tastes like a mild, sweet turnip with a crisp hint of radish. The bulbous stem and leaves are all edible. The bulb is delicious raw, grated or shaved into slaws or salads. Delightful roasted and caramelised in the oven, steamed, used in a creamy soup, or puréed. Kohlrabi is a favourite in Indian cuisine, so it naturally pairs with Indian spices.

Sow

Sow direct where they are to grow. Cover lightly with Yates® Black Magic® Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist.
