My sole kohlrabi that made it from my spring planting. It's a Super Schmelz and HUGE!
FRIDAY'S ROOKIE TOPIC XV, KOHLRABI  - Page 3 20130726_060343_zps489b01a5

Just for kicks and giggles, I'm letting it go just to see how large it will actually get.

Yum! I love kohlrabi! My spring planting was a bust, so I've got lots of seedlings that will be ready to transplant as soon as some squares open up. 
Mostly purple and a few super Schmelz.

I have never grown a kohlrabi, what do they taste like?  How are they prepared, raw, cooked?

To me, they taste kind of like broccoli/cauliflower. We peel ours and sort of treat it like a potato? You can steam it, then mash, or dice it. You can put them raw in a stew like a potato. Roast etc. I love them. I tried them raw, and they're just OK. We put the leaves in our smoothies too Smile

I either roast them with other root vegetables for a side dish or chop and put it in soup like I do with turnip.

So I have grown a lovely purple kohlrabi for 2 years now...I love them.  They are turnip-ish in flavor but you can cook them to change it up a bit.  Hope I can find a pic!

Those look nice! The leaves look tasty too!

I've got some sprouts going at the moment. I can take snapshots in the morning if you're interested.

It's surprising that kohlrabi haven't caught on more. My dad was growing them for a friend of his more than 40 years ago!

They look like they're doing well. They don't look like they've been attacked by bugs the way mine have (except the ones under the tulle -- the tulle seems to work).

No bugs, but they did have some broken leaves from the snow. They're all recovering, nicely, now. Cool

I agree, Mark, because this is an old vegetable, although they were white when I remember them...but still the same veggie!  I really like them, but I love Cole crops.

One of my kohlrabi plants is bolting. If I cut off the top, will it still form a bulb? Would it be bitter? Should I just yank that plant and forget it? HELP!  idk

My experience has been that once they start to bolt they put all of their energy into developing seeds and do not form the bulb.  The leaves are still good to eat, but no bulb. Of course, your mileage may vary....
