Extra-Early, Tender 4-inch Bulbs!
42 days from direct-sowing.
This extra-early variety is a real workhorse, finishing fast yet producing truly tender, crisp 4-inch bulbs on compact plants. Express Forcer Hybrid is a good choice for spring crops in warm climates, being more tolerant of heat than most Kohlrabis. And the edible tops are delicious in stir-fry!
Kohlrabi has yet to make a real splash in the American diet, yet it has been a mainstay in many parts of Europe for centuries. The name means “turnip cabbage” in German, and this expresses the versatile nature of the vegetable very well. Kohlrabi bulbs, rich in vitamin C and potassium, are great raw in salads or cooked in stir-fries. The leaves are also edible, both as young and mature foliage. Heavy in calcium, iron, and potassium, they are ideal for stews, soups, and sautes.
For a quick crop that stands up to unseasonable heat, rely on Express Forcer! You will love having the harvest in so quickly, freeing up the vegetable garden for other crops (or sowing kohlrabi seed every 2 to 3 weeks for season-long fresh eating!)
Direct-sow the seeds in early spring for late-spring harvest, or in midsummer for fall harvest. Space the plants about 6 inches apart. Unlike most vegetables, Kohlrabi can take a little shade without damage. Pkt is 75 seeds.
