Kohlrabi is an annual vegetable. It is a low, stout cultivar of cabbage. Kohlrabi is a strange looking vegetable, very different from other family members (cabbage, broccoli, etc). It is grown for its enlarged bulb-like swelling that develops on the stem a few inches above the ground. The plant resembles that of the cabbage by corm sprout long petioles (leaf stems) with leaves. The whole plant is less than 2 ft (0.6 metre) tall. It is a fast-growing plant that can be eaten raw as well as cooked.
