How to sprout Red Kohlrabi seeds:
  • Rinse and soak the kohlrabi seeds in clean water for 5-6 hours.
  • Drain and rinse the seeds and put them in your jar.
  • Rinse the seeds daily.
  • The sprouts should be ready for consumption within five days.
  • Brassicas have microscopic roots. They are called root hairs and are most visible just before Rinsing when the sprouts are at their driest. When you rinse, the root hairs will collapse back against the main root – becoming invisible to you. These root hairs can look like mould – but they are not.
  • Red Kohlrabi can also be sown as a microgreen.

How to grow Red Kohlrabi microgreens from seed:
  • Sprinkle the Red Kohlrabi seeds over a tray of compost and press down gently.
  • Cover with a fine layer of compost.
  • It is advisable to use microbiologically tested compost such as Klasmann Peat Free Seed Compost to ensure there is no pathogens present.
  • Keep the compost moist – be careful not to over water though!
  • Should be ready in about 10-15 days.
