When to sow
When to Sow Green Delicacy Kohl Rabi Seeds
March to June
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.
Makes a pleasant change as a vegetable, slice and fry gently in olive oil or use in place of turnips.
A good source of iron, manganese and folic acid.
