TO START SEEDS DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN
In early spring, as soon as ground can be worked, plant in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Sow seeds 1 in. apart in rows 6 to 8 in. apart. Cover 1/2 in. deep and keep soil evenly moist for good germination. When seedlings are 3 in. tall, thin to stand 4 to 6 in. apart, ensuring that the bulbs have enough room to grow rapidly. Sow again in late summer for another crop.
TO START EARLY INDOORS
Start seeds 4 to 5 weeks before the last spring frost. Sow 1 in. apart in a container of seed starting mix, cover 1/2 in. deep and keep evenly moist. Provide a strong light source until ready to plant out. When 3 in. tall, transplant seedlings 4 to 6 in. apart into rich , well-drained soil in full sun.
GROWING & HARVEST
Plant in rich fertile soil. Fertilize regularly and water consistently to ensure the steady growth that produces the best tasting, sweetest kohlrabi. Harvest when bulbs are about 2 in. in diameter. Peel, slice and enjoy their crisp flesh raw or cook and serve mashed with butter, in soup or with a cream sauce.
