Kohlrabi
(Brassica oleracea)

summer crisp
As a common vegetable in German speaking countries, it is natural that Kohlrabi’s name comes from the uniting of the German words for cabbage, “kohl,” and turnip, “rabi.” Kohlrabi has been artificially bred from the wild cabbage plant, similar to broccoli, kale, collard greens and brussel sprouts, for its swollen, spherical shape. There are several common varieties, including White Vienna, Purple Vienna, Grand Duke, Gigante or Superschmelz, Purple Danube, and White Danube.
