Kohlrabi is one of the most unique veggies that we deliver. You might look at these little guys and think they're a mix between a cabbage, a turnip, and an alien, but hopefully that won't stop you from enjoying all that they have to offer.

A descendant of wild cabbage, kohlrabi tastes like a milder, sweeter version of fresh broccoli stems. You can cook it in a variety of ways, and many enjoy eating it raw. Before preparing the kohlrabi, just peel the skin and cut it up!

Here is a list of 5 exceptional things you can do with this funky little veggie.
