We are on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Last year I planted kohlrabi starts, and had really good, make that huge, plants - sweet and juicy even when large. I cut the bulb off to use, leaving the roots and base of the bulb, when I wanted to harvest, and very quickly a new bulb would develop. I got not only secondary, but third-time bulbs to eat. I don't know what "variety" the plants were. This year, I have really nice big plants, and the bulbs are sweet and juicy - but I am not getting any secondary harvest. Can anyone help me with the name of a variety that they have experienced that produces secondary plants? It was sure nice have kohlrabi all summer long!
