Kohlrabi is another name for our not-so-popular Knolkhol. It belongs to the same family as Cabbage and Cauliflower(Brassicaceae). The Whole plant is edible however, it is mostly used for its bulged swollen stem. It can be eaten raw as well as cooked. Though it prefers a cold weather, it does moderately well for our Bangalore weather.
Knolkhol makes a good candidate for a kitchen garden because of its quick maturity. It comes to harvest in just about 50 days. Another interesting part is that it comes in different colors :D.
You get them in White, Green and Violet/Purple.
