Buying Tips

Kohlrabi can be found in the produce section of most health food stores, specialty markets, and supermarkets. Choose firm, heavy kohlrabi with deep green leaves, avoiding any with browning or yellowing leaves.


There are two types of kohlrabi, green and purple. The coloring should be light for the green one and deep for the purple one. The greens for both types should be crisp and firm.
