Hi,

has anyone grown Kohl Rabi? If so, would they do so again. I had never heard of it before but bought some seeds last week. The write up seems almost too good to be true: a fantastic tasting winter vegetable?

i grew this for the first time this year and the edible part was more like a swelling on the stem rather than the low lying bulb on the picture as for the eating, no taste at all complete absence of taste in fact just like cucumber has (for me anyway) tried it boiled as it is a brassica and raw, grated. Don't think i'd try it again as my space is limited for all that i want to grow.
Regards, ian.

My mother is growing kohlrabi as long as I can think. This is a brilliant vegetable. Its not grown a lot here, but if you're up to try something new, go for it. It needs a bit of work like cauliflower and is a very hungry and fast growing plant. You need to feed it well and give it space to grow. I will sow some on the windowsill end January or early February. They need to go into a cold frame after they have developed two or three real leaves. I plat them out in April depending on the weather. My favourite way to cook them is to slice them into 2cm thick slices, steam for 10 minutes and then cover them in bread crumbs and fry them until golden. Great with some cream fraiche... Very Happy

I grew it last year. It's lovely roasted with garlic and a bit of butter.
