I harvested our first kohlrabi this week. I've never grown or eaten it before so I was keen to try it.
The seeds were brought from the real seed catalogue and they germinated and grew well - like most brassicas do in fact.
I started them off in cells and then planted them out in the garden a few months ago. They've grown well and not suffered from pests much at all even though I didn't bother to net them (too early for cabbage whites I think).
|Good sized - not too big|
To cook them I peeled, chopped and steamed them before roasting them in the oven for 45 minutes.
I served them with some home made savoury rice and chopped pork covered in paprika. A really great meal and I'll certainly be growing kohlrabi again.
Low maintenance, fast growing and tasty - what's not to like?
Does anyone else grow this odd looking veg? What are your thoughts on it?
