Melissa's Kohlrabi is a cruciferous vegetable, along with cabbage, kale, cauliflower and broccoli. About the size of an orange, Kohlrabi is pale green or purple-tinged (purple kohlrabi), and round. Firm stems with large leaves branch out evenly at all angles. The leaves, which taste like kale, collards or cabbage, can be steamed, boiled or added to soups.

Even though both the leaves and stems are edible, Kohlrabi is sometimes sold without the tops. Melissa's Kohlrabi bulbs are more flavorful and tender when small and have a hint of radish and cucumber flavors. Purple Kohlrabi tends to have a slightly spicier flavor.
Kohlrabi from Melissa's is hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose smooth, unblemished tubers. The smaller bulbs are more flavorful. If the leaves are still attached, they should be firm and fresh.

Cut the leaves from the tubers and refrigerate separately in plastic bags. The Kohlrabi will keep up to a week or more, and the leaves for several days. Rinse and pat dry. Cut off the top and remove any stems at the base — Peel, removing any visible fibers under the peel. Melissa's Kohlrabi can be enjoyed raw or grated, cubed or thinly sliced, then boiled or steamed.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd Day.

Any orders that do not have the appropriate shipping method selected will not be shipped out. For assistance, please call us at 800-588-0151.

They were soooo crisp!! May 1, 2015
Reviewer: Karen from Fox Lake, WI United States  
I "found" your kohlrabies in our local grocery stores this last winter. Looking at the almost $6 price tag for 3, I was a little leery about buying any, because "fresh" fruits and vegetables that have to be shipped to Wisconsin in the middle of our cold season, usually do not taste very good. I am so happy to say that, not only was I impressed with their flavor and texture (they were soooo crisp!!), that I am still buying them today. It is not our growing season yet and I am going to try growing some in my garden, but you can bet that I will continue to buy yours!! I am, seriously, addicted to them!! They have always been one of my favorite garden treats since I was a kid. Keep up the good work!!
