Cultivation Advice 

  • Choose well-draining, fertile soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Work in organic matter like compost before planting. Directly sow kohlrabi seeds or transplant seedlings about 6-8 inches apart.
  • Kohlrabi thrives in full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade. Ensure the plants receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily for optimal growth.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist throughout the growing season. Kohlrabi prefers even moisture to prevent the development of woody or pithy bulbs.
  • Apply a layer of organic mulch around the plants to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds.
  • Use a balanced organic fertilizer or well-rotted compost at planting. Avoid over-fertilizing, as excessive nitrogen can lead to excessive leaf growth at the expense of bulb development.
  • If you start from seeds, thin out the seedlings once they have a few true leaves, leaving the healthiest plants spaced appropriately.
  • Kohlrabi can benefit from companion planting with herbs like mint or chamomile. Avoid planting near tomatoes and peppers.
  • Keep an eye out for common pests like cabbage worms or aphids. Use organic pest control methods, such as neem oil or insecticidal soap.
  • Harvest kohlrabi when the bulbs are about 2-3 inches in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut the bulbs just above the soil level. Younger bulbs tend to be more tender.
  • For a continuous harvest, consider successive plantings every few weeks. This can extend the availability of fresh kohlrabi throughout the growing season.
  • Kohlrabi is versatile and can be enjoyed raw in salads, slaws, or as a crunchy snack. It can also be cooked by roasting, steaming, or sautéing. The leaves are edible and can be used in salads or cooked like other greens.
  • Kohlrabi can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks. Remove the leaves before storing, and keep the bulbs in a cool, humid environment.
  • Before planting, enrich the soil with well-rotted compost or aged manure. Kohlrabi benefits from nutrient-rich soil.
  • Maintain a consistent watering schedule to ensure the soil stays consistently moist. Regular watering helps prevent the development of tough or woody bulbs.
  • Consider blanching kohlrabi by covering the bulbs with soil or using commercial blanching collars. This can enhance tenderness and flavor.
  • Harvest kohlrabi when the bulbs are still small to medium-sized for the best flavor and tenderness. Larger bulbs may become fibrous.
  • Kohlrabi Kohl Rabi Superschmelz can be grown in containers. Ensure the containers have good drainage, and use a high-quality potting mix.
  • Practice crop rotation to minimize the risk of soil-borne diseases. Avoid planting kohlrabi in the same spot where members of the cabbage family were grown in the previous year.
  • If you have a surplus harvest, blanch and freeze kohlrabi for longer storage. This allows you to enjoy its freshness beyond the growing season.
  • Maintain a gardening journal to record planting dates, growth patterns, and any issues encountered. This information can guide future cultivation.
  • Experiment with different culinary uses for Kohlrabi Kohl Rabi Superschmelz. Try it in stir-fries, soups, or even as a unique addition to vegetable gratins.
  • Regularly inspect your plants for signs of pests. Early detection allows for timely intervention with organic pest control methods.
  • Mulch not only helps retain soil moisture but also regulates soil temperature and suppresses weeds around kohlrabi plants.
  • Explore methods of preserving kohlrabi, such as pickling or fermenting, to extend its usability in various dishes.
