I’m glad to hear that you find it easy to grow purple kohlrabi at home and that you’ve had success with large and beautiful tubers! Kohlrabi is indeed a versatile and relatively easy-to-grow vegetable that adds a unique touch to home gardens. The purple varieties, in particular, are known for their vibrant color and delicious, slightly sweet flavor.

For those who might be interested in growing purple kohlrabi at home, here’s a general guide:

Growing Purple Kohlrabi at Home:

Choose a Sunny Location:

Plant purple kohlrabi in a sunny location that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight daily.

Prepare the Soil:

Kohlrabi prefers well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Amend the soil with compost if needed.

Planting Seeds:

Directly sow purple kohlrabi seeds in the garden or containers. Plant the seeds about 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep and thin the seedlings as needed once they emerge.


Space the kohlrabi plants according to the variety’s recommendations. Purple kohlrabi plants should have enough room to develop bulbs without crowding.


Keep the soil consistently moist. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry.


Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds.
