Renee's purple and green-skinned Kohlrabi Duo makes a pretty picture in garden beds. Both colors are extra fancy hybrids; fast-growing, vigorous Dutch selections that quickly form crispy round bulbs with thin skins and crunchy, sweet, white flesh that doesn’t get tough or pithy. Eat them peeled and sliced thin for healthy low-calorie snacks, use for crispy slaw, or cook for savory side dishes. After harvest, Kohlrabi stores well in the fridge extending its usefulness in the kitchen.

Planting Instructions: In early spring, as soon as ground can be worked, plant in well-drained, fertile soil in full sun. Sow seeds 1 inch apart in rows 6 to 8 inches apart. Cover 1/2 inch deep and keep soil evenly moist for good germination. When seedlings are 3 inches tall, thin to stand 4 to 6 inches apart, ensuring that the bulbs have enough room to grow rapidly. Sow again in late summer for another crop.
Harvest when bulbs are about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.
