Kohlrabi Seeds, Vienna Purple
Click Image for Gallery
Fine crisp 'apple'-like flesh with a mild delicate flavor. An heirloom variety dating back to the 1860's. Fairly good resistance to cabbage worm and other pests. Excellent raw in dips and grated for salads, also used cooked and stir fried. A long-time standard that is cold hardy. Unlike the domestic production I have tried, this Italian seed is resistant to early bolting at most times. On our farm we switched to this seed rather than using the extremely expensive Hybrids, the cheapest I could find costs well over $300 per pound. Untreated seed.
