Also known as 'early White Vienna' and 'Di Vienna Bianco' kohlrabi, is known to have been grown as far back as the 1850s, and will grow well in most regions of the United States.
"Kohlrabi" comes from the German kohl (cabbage) and the Swiss-German rabi (turnip) due to the combination of its appearance and flavor. It is a relatively recent addition to the cabbage family, with historical records only dating back to the end of the 16th century.

Kohlrabi has a sweeter and more mild flavor than the turnips it resembles. Try grating fresh, peeled bulbs with apple, fennel, and cabbage for a cole slaw variant or tossing diced kohlrabi in with salads.
Roasted kohlrabi can be used along with the cooked tops of the plants in curries and soups.
Dirt Goddess Super Seeds are inoculated with Mycorrhizae, Beneficial Bacteria & Trichoderma for Superior Growth & Vigor. Organically!
Mycorrhizae forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of 95% of the worlds plants and it’s believed that plants were able to evolve onto land due to this symbiosis.
Colonization by mycorrhizae can provide multiple functions: increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, resistance to pathogens, increased vigor and yield.
It has been shown that the presence of Mycorrhizae can increase a plant’s absorption of certain nutrients which it cannot uptake on its own.
In most gardens and agricultural settings, the mycorrhizae is destroyed by tilling, the overuse of chemical fertilizers, and fungicides. The mycorrhizae must be re-added to the soil in order to benefit the plant.
Mycorrhizae is naturally 100% organic.
