Seed Swaps

Kohl Rabi   

An unusual vegetable with its “tentacles” but it’s a good source of Vitamin C, as well as magnesium and phosphorous, which are useful in the absorption of calcium.

Its mild flavour and ability to absorb the flavour of other ingredients in a meal make it an ideal vegetable for bulking up recipes and sneaking in extra veggies.

The name “kohl rabi” comes from the German literally meaning “cabbage turnip”.

Seedlings should emerge in 6-10 days. Harvest at approx 8-10 weeks or when about the size of a tennis ball. Information taken from seed packet (D.T. Brown & C0)

I have a Greek recipe using kohl rabi, pears and fetta cheese I am dying to try. Hurry up and grow!
