Kohlrabi, Azur Star
This purple, 4-inch-diameter kohlrabi makes some of the best kohl-slaws by grating it along with some green apple. Azur Star has all the fresh, crisp flavor of broccoli stems without being fibrous or tough. It is wonderful eaten fresh when shaved thin as a chip and eaten fresh. Plant them 8 inches apart, and harvest them when the stems swell to 4 inches in diameter.
