Yes, Kohlrabi leaves are also edible and very high in nutrients. They can be chopped up and put in salads or cooked like greens. The younger leaves will give you the most flavor.

Your plants have bolted. Once this happens, they become woody and bitter and are no longer good. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/what-is-bolting-what-it-means-when-a-plant-bolts.htm

Some of my Kohlrabi didn’t bulb, but grew long and skinny. What causes that to happen?

ANSWERS

This can happen for a few reasons. The first is that they were not planted deep enough. Another reason can be that they were stressed, especially if they were stressed as seedlings. They have a harder time forming a bulb. Too little light can keep them from forming a proper bulb and too little nutrients as well.

My kohlrabi is beginning to flower and the bulbs aren’t formed yet. Are we on track? Should I pinch back the flowering parts?
