A quirky cousin of cabbage, this unique vegetable will inspire your tastebuds and adds a delicious flavour to salads or coleslaw dishes. Sweeter and milder than cabbage its flesh has a nutty flavour when eaten raw and a mild taste when cooked.
How to Grow: Sow seed directly outdoors anytime from late April to late July 1 cm (1/2”) deep and 2.5 cm (1”) apart. Space rows 30-45 cm (12-18”) apart. Thin emerging seedlings to 10 cm (4”) apart in the row.
Harvesting: Pick the light green bulbs when 8-10 cm (4-3”) diameter to enjoy their sweetest flavour or leave them in the garden until late fall to enjoy larger, still tender roots. Frost hardy and stores well.
