Superschmelz/ Giant White
This bright green variety is gargantuan! The bulb on the Superschmelz or Giant White Kohlrabi grows up to 10 in. across and can weigh in at an unbelievable 10 pounds! But there’s no sacrifice on taste or texture — you can count on tender and smooth results. Rich soil will definitely increase bulb size. 60-70 days to harvest.
Each packet contains approximately 400 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
A fast growing cool weather crop that thrives in well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Direct sow spring crops 4-6 weeks before the last frost date. Fall crops should be started indoors 6-8 weeks before the first frost. Plant 1/4 inch deep, allowing one foot spacing between plants and two feet between rows.
Harvest stems when they are young and tender, usually 2-3 inches in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut from the base of the plant about one inch below the swollen stem. Plants will keep 2-3 weeks in the fridge.
