Description:

Heirloom Vegetable

This handsome purple, pre-1860 variety has a white, crisp, mild tasting interior. Flesh has a nutty flavour when eaten raw and a mild cabbage taste when cooked. An excellent companion plant amongst cucumbers. Irrigation is essential for best growth. Purple Vienna withstands considerable frost and when conditions are not too cool or too hot, crops can be harvested as little as six to eight weeks after sowing but are best when the stem reaches 5-7.5 cm (2-3") in diameter. Try successive sowings two weeks apart from April through to early August.
