This gardening enthusiast from Alaska is digging up some heavy duty fruits and veggies. Like a 39-pound turnip, a 64-pound cantaloupe, and a 75-pound rutabaga. Not to mention some very giant kohlrabi plants. Now that’s a lot of phytonutrients! Here’s the video:
Not sure what a kohlrabi is? I wasn’t either. So be sure to check out its page on Wikipedia:
The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter, with a higher ratio of flesh to skin. The young stem in particular can be as crisp and juicy as an apple, although much less sweet. Except for the Gigante cultivar, spring-grown kohlrabi much over 5 cm in size tend to be woody, as do fall-grown kohlrabi much over perhaps 10 cm in size; the Gigante cultivar can achieve great size while remaining of good eating quality.
