    The swollen stems of kohl rabi look as if they've just landed from outer space, but this architectural vegetable is a real delicacy. The purple-flushed globe has a taste similar to the sweet, crunchy heart of a broccoli stem, and can be eaten as a crisp raw ingredient in salads or cooked like turnips.

  • Growing Instructions:Sow direct into fertile soil in shallow drills in spring. Thin seedlings to 15cm apart and protect from slugs. Alternatively, grow in containers, sowing direct and allowing four plants to a 35cm pot. Kohlrabi is quick to mature, taking as little as 10 weeks from seed to harvest: cut when the swollen stems reach tennis ball sized. Sow a few plants every three weeks to ensure a continuous harvest right through till late autumn.

  • Sow: March to July

  • Harvest: June to September

  • Approximate quantity: 450 seeds.
