Kohl Rabi ‘Kolibri’ F1 Hybrid – 1 packet (35 seeds) £2.89
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.

I tried planting some earlier in the year but the bizarre weather didn’t help it!
Time to sow another row!
