Purple Vienna Kohlrabi

Certified Organic Seed

Brassica oleracea

Any way you dice it, it's delicious.

Raw, cooked, diced, fried, stewed, julienned, fresh from the garden, or stored for winter, this inter-planetary looking cole crop should be a more familiar sight in American gardens (not just in Roswell). This variety has a lovely purple hued skin and light green interior, giving it the luminescence of a flying saucer.

This pretty cross produces an enlarged stem that's turnip shaped and tastes like a sweeter broccoli. Great raw and cooked and best grown in spring and fall.
