There is a very high demand for seed at the moment, and we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.
Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity. We have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.
Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.
P.S. We apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some
Kohlrabi – Azur Star (Organic)
A very attractive purple heritage variety, fast growing and well suited to early and late plantings due to its cold hardiness. Azur Star is certainly our shining star for early and late season crops. It grows fast and consistently and is ready to harvest after 8-12 weeks. Although sometimes considered a root vegetable, kohlrabi is actually the swollen stem of the plant. The whole plant can be eaten, the large leaves can be cooked like kale and smaller leaves make a pretty and very tasty addition to salads. The stem can be cooked in various ways, steamed, stir fried, baked etc, but to be honest we think it tastes better raw. Eaten raw it is similar to apple in taste and texture, but with a slightly nuttier flavour. This variety is best harvested when tennis ball-sized as it can become woody when left to grow much larger.
