Kohlrabi <em>&lsquo;Purple Danube&rsquo;</em> F1

The vibrant purple skin and stems of this variety are striking in the garden, and its sweet nutty flavor is one of the best. Purple varieties take longer to mature than white, so this makes a good late summer and fall crop.

Sow: Mid-spring to early summer
Harvest: Midsummer to late fall
Soil Preference: Well-drained soil, moist soil
Sun or Shade: Full sun, partial or dappled shade
