About our kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is a vegetable that belongs to the Brassica family, which includes cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. It’s not native to Italy but has become a part of Italian cuisine due to the country’s culinary diversity and openness to incorporating a wide range of ingredients. It has a unique appearance with a bulbous, round, or slightly flattened shape. It comes in various colours, including light green and purple. The edible part is the bulbous stem, which has a crisp texture similar to an apple and a mildly sweet, slightly peppery flavour.

It can be grown in various climates and is often cultivated as a cool-season crop. It prefers well-drained soil and full sun. The bulbous stem can be harvested when it reaches a desired size, typically around 2 to 3 inches in diameter for optimal tenderness. Although available all year round, it is at its best from mid-July to mid October.
