Thank-you so much for your support this 2020 season, Ottawa-Gatineau! All of our CSA Memberships and Plant Sale are completely sold out. We are working hard to bring you a Fall Share Basket option so there's still a chance to join our farm-ily and support local, small-scale farming. Sign-up for our newsletter to be notified when our Fall Share becomes available.

Kohlrabi

About Me: The name says it all: kohl (cabbage) rabi (turnip). This plant was developed by crossing a cabbage with a turnip. The most sought after part of the plant is the enlarged bulb that develops just above the ground, although all parts of the plant are edible. It can be either white, light green, or purple. Kohlrabi is super high in vitamin A, and a good source of dietary fibre. Kohlrabi is great as a slaw, made into fries, or in a tasty salad with fennel and apple. 

Storage: Store kohlrabi bulbs separate from the stems and leaves. Place each  bulb and bunch of stalks in a mesh bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a reused plastic bag, or container inside your fridge crisper. They will keep for at least two weeks.
