General Information: 

Kohlrabi, also known as the German turnip, is a member of the cabbage family and is prized for its crisp texture and mild, sweet flavor. It is rich in essential nutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, and fiber, making it a healthy addition to any diet.

Kohlrabi thrives in cool weather, so it is best to plant it in early spring or late summer. Select a location in your garden that receives full sun or partial shade. Ensure the soil is well-drained and rich in organic matter.

Before planting, prepare the soil by removing any weeds and loosening it with a garden fork or tiller. Add compost or well-rotted manure to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plants regularly, especially during dry spells. Apply a balanced fertilizer once a month to promote healthy growth.

Kohlrabi is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common cabbage family pests such as cabbage worms and aphids. Use organic pest control methods if necessary, such as handpicking or applying neem oil.

Kohlrabi is ready to harvest when the bulbous stem reaches 2-3 inches in diameter. Use a sharp knife or garden shears to cut the stem just above ground level. The leaves can also be harvested and used in salads or cooked dishes.
