Kohlrabi grows seedlings and seedless way.
The cultivation technique is similar to that of white cabbage. Unlike other types of cabbage, seedlings are planted shallowly, sprinkling only the root system with earth (with deep planting, elongated stems are obtained). Watering and top dressing are carried out at the beginning of the formation of the stem crop.
Kohlrabi is harvested when the stems reach 8-12 cm in diameter (when overripe, they become coarse and fibrous).
Store at a temperature of 0 ° C, with a humidity of 95% for 1.5-2 months. Kohlrabi stalks are juicy and firm, from light green to dark purple in colour (depending on the variety).
The nutritional and dietary value and pleasant taste of the plant are due to the high sugar content, a large number of mineral salts - potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, as well as vitamins (niacin, riboflavin, thiamine).
