I planted purple vienna kohlrabi late last fall. They never formed bulbs, but I wasn't really surprised. This seems to be common among other vegetable gardeners. I pulled most of the plants in February, but left a few mostly because I think their leaves are pretty. And THEN I see THIS:
Trying not to get my hopes up, I snipped off the flower bud, gave it a quick rinse, and took a bite. Mmmm...tastes like broccoli. Several side shoots are forming and I'm just trying to snip them before any flowers open. So far, I've picked half a pound of kohlrabi buds from 2 plants...not bad!
