History: Purple Vienna Kohlrabi boasts deep European roots, particularly in regions where its unique flavor and texture have been savored for generations. The name "kohlrabi" is derived from the German words for cabbage ("kohl") and turnip ("rübe"), which hints at its Central European origins. Purple Vienna, as a distinct variety, is especially celebrated for its vibrant color and sweet profile, making it a traditional favorite among many households.

Uses: The versatility of Purple Vienna Kohlrabi truly stands out in the kitchen. Its sweet white flesh, reminiscent of a turnip, can be enjoyed raw in salads, bringing a crisp texture to any dish. When cooked, it transforms, delivering a delightful flavor whether roasted, steamed, or sautéed. Additionally, it's an ingredient that shines in soups, adding both texture and depth. Beyond its culinary attributes, kohlrabi is also a nutritional powerhouse, rich in essential minerals, nutrients, and particularly known for its antioxidant properties which assist in cancer prevention.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: Kohlrabi thrives in cooler climates, making it an excellent choice for early spring or fall planting. Select a spot in your garden with well-draining soil and ample sunlight. Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep, ensuring they're spaced about 6 inches apart. Rows should be set 12-18 inches apart. Regular watering is crucial for kohlrabi, especially during dry spells, to ensure consistent growth. As bulbs start to appear above the ground, ensure they're free from soil and debris to prevent rot. Harvest when the bulbs are 2-3 inches in diameter for the best flavor and texture.
