HOW TO GROW KOHLRABI FROM SEEDS
Kohlrabi seeds can be started from seeds quickly. The Kohlrabi seeds should be started in the early spring or the early fall. It would be best not to begin Kohlrabi from seeds until the soil temperature reaches at least 7 degrees C. Seed propagation requires fertile soil. When starting Kohlrabi from seeds, plant the seeds about 0.5 cm. deep in rows two feet apart. A row of seedlings should be thinned to 10 to 15 cm apart after 4-7 days from when they emerge. Much like spinach or mustard greens, the tender young leaves of the plants can be eaten.
CARE AFTER GERMINATION OF KOHLRABI
Maintain an even moisture level in the soil to promote rapid growth. Without water, Kohlrabi will become woody. Use aged compost to prepare planting beds—side-dress Kohlrabi with aged compost once a month. A plant-starter or balanced organic fertilizer can also feed Kohlrabi once a month. Cultivate carefully to avoid harming the shallow roots. Mulch the kohlrabi plants when they reach a height of 10-12 cm with aged compost. Cutworms, cabbage loopers, and imported cabbage worms can attack Kohlrabi. Protect seedling stems from cutworm damage by wrapping collars around them.
KOHLRABI USES AND HEALTH BENEFITS
Kohlrabi is just a superfood. These cruciferous vegetables are cousins to brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale and are rich in nutrients. To be a superfood, the item must be nutrient-rich, which Kohlrabi is. In addition to being nutrient-rich, it is also low in calories. It is used as an antioxidant for cancer, heart disease, constipation, diabetes, gout, hemorrhoids, hot flashes, high cholesterol, liver disease, menstrual symptoms, sciatica pain, scurvy, and weight loss. It is also applied to the skin for hair loss.
