KOHL RABI (Brassica oleracea caulorapa)
This is far more popular on the continent than in the British Isles. Whereare grown satisfactorily, they are usually preferred to this vegetable, but as Kohl Rabi will grow in many districts where turnip culture is almost impossible, it is a useful vegetable in many gardens.
Seeds can be sown broadcast in April and thetransplanted as soon as possible into well-dug in rows 2 ft. apart allowing in. between each seedling. Keep the plants well supplied with water and keep the hoe going frequently during the hot weather. This crop should be used before it gets full size, otherwise it loses its fine flavour and becomes tough and woody.
Varieties available are “Early Green,” “Early White,” and “Early Purple.”
