History: White Vienna Kohlrabi traces its lineage to Europe, being a beloved heirloom variety cherished by many households for generations. As the counterpart to the Purple Vienna, this variety is particularly noted for its pale green skin and rapid growth rate, often finding its way into European kitchens due to its mild flavor and versatility.
Uses: The delectable flavor profile of the White Vienna Kohlrabi lends itself to an array of culinary applications. The mild, slightly sweet taste is perfect for raw consumption in salads, offering a crunchy texture. It can also be roasted to bring out deeper flavors or incorporated into soups and stews. The bulb's texture remains consistent, making it an excellent addition to stir-fries, and its mild nature allows it to soak up accompanying flavors wonderfully.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: White Vienna Kohlrabi prefers cooler weather, making it ideal for both spring and fall plantings. Choose a location with full sunlight and well-draining soil for optimal growth. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch deep, spacing them approximately 6 inches apart. Rows should be spaced about 12-18 inches apart to allow for ample growth. Regular and consistent watering is essential, ensuring the soil remains moist but not waterlogged. As the bulbs emerge and grow, keep the area around them free from excess soil to prevent potential rot. Harvest the kohlrabi when the bulbs reach around 3 inches in diameter for the best texture and flavor.
