  • Korfu F1 is a very early hybrid variety suitable for forcing and for all year. It is bolt resistant and quick to mature. It has a globular stem which is light green and produces a good quality tender flesh.

     

    Kohl Rabi is a member of the brassica family. With the stem just above ground level, it swells to form the crisp, juicy vegetable with a texture similar to a Water Chestnut. Its flavour is much like that of a turnip but milder.

WHEN TO SOW

March to July 

Where to Sow

Sow seeds thinly in a well prepared seed bed in shallow drills 1.5cm (1/2") deep in rows spaced 30cm apart. Alternatively sow two seeds per cell in modules under glass at 13°C. Sow seed in succession to prolong the cropping period.

What to do Next

Outdoor sowings should be thinned out to 15cm (6in) apart and grown on to maturity. As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out to the same spacings as detailed above. Harvest when young from the size of a golf ball up to the size of a tennis ball.

MATURITY

June onwards

HANDY TIP

Makes a pleasant change as a vegetable, slice and fry gently in olive oil or use in place of turnips. Roots must be used young, between golf and tennis ball size. Sow successionally to achieve continuous crops

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

A good source of iron, manganese and folic acid.
