This produced nice bulbs as a fall crop here in Maryland, albeit not the softball-sized ones seen in colder climates as a spring crop. Quality was equal to the smaller varieties.

Grown like regular kohlrabi, this giant can be left in the garden all season until after the first fall frosts. Ours ranged 10-11 lbs with all the leaves and roots removed. Unlike other kohlrabi varieties, the kossack did not get woody at all.
