HOW TO GROW KOHLRABI FROM SEEDS

PLANTING KOHLRABI:

  • Kohlrabi likes loose soil.
  • For a spring crop, sow seeds 4-6 weeks before the average last frost date.
  • Plant 1/4 inch deep about 10 seeds for foot.
  • For a fall crop, start seedlings indoors 6-8 weeks before the last average frost. Once seedlings are about 4 inches tall, thin the plants, and transplant 5 inches apart and 1 foot apart in rows.

CARING FOR KOHLRABI PLANT:

  • Keep kohlrabi well watered.
  • Mulch heavily to retain moisture.
  • Keep free of weeds.

HARVESTING KOHLRABI:

  • Harvest kohlrabi bulbs when they are no more than 2 inches in diameter, cutting the stem 1 inch below the bulb.
  • You can use both the bulb and the leaves. Leaves make great additions to soups and salads, while the bulbs also make great soups and other dishes.

Happy Planting!
