Kohl Rabi 'Kolibri' F1 Hybrid

Brassica oleracea (Gongylodes Group)

Hardy Annual

 Customer Rating

Attractive, purple-skinned roots with pure white, succulent flesh, best eaten when golf ball size, although the flesh still remains succulent and bitter free when roots are larger. Easy to grow, quick to mature in under 8 weeks from sowing. Plants have a neat, compact growth making them ideal for early sowings under cloches or fleece.Prefers well-drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. A rich source of the provitamin A, vitamins C and K and folate as well as the antioxidant carotenoids b-carotene and lutein.


Companion planting: Try growing Kohl rabi with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.

  1. Another tasty vegetable from T. & M.

    By Peter Humphrey 11-09-2011

    Germination 100%, sown in modules over two sowings one month apart. Needed a lot of watering through a very dry April and May produced very good growth, they grow faster than I can eat them . They remain tender and tasty up to tennis ball size, though I try to eat when golf ball size. I have put some in the freezer as an experiment and having tried a batch. I can say they have not lost their flavour.I have these seeds already for next year
