This old German heirloom produces gorgeous, violet-blue frosted globes. The name translates to “Blue Bacon Kohlrabi,” thanks to the hypnotic blue color and ultra fine-grained, buttery-flavored stems. Originally introduced in 1914, the large, flattened stems have an incredible storage life, which was of paramount importance before the advent of modern refrigeration. This old commercial variety is perfect for small farmers and back-yard gardeners. Blauer Speck has small, sparse leaves, more conducive to a tight planting in order to save space in the garden.

What are the pros? tasty leaves

What are the cons? no bulbs

Review:

this has been a weird year for my garden. most things have not lived up to their full potential. these have been growing since early spring, planted the same time as my peas and came up fast, and are still growing with no sign of bolting, also no bulbs (they are finally starting to fatten up at the base in august!). i have enjoyed the wonderful tender leaves in many dishes like a broccoli flavored kale, or cabbage. have not had a large leaf problem because we keep eating them. planting for fall too since it has certainly paid for itself many times over at least in greens.

What are the pros? Tasty, nice looking

What are the cons? Leaves are quite large

Review:

These are great tasting and looking, just picked 3 today almost a little early (about 3" wide, 2" tall) and theyre great raw. Haven't tried cooked yet but I like these in skillets in the place of hash browns. Can't remember how many I planted but most seem to have sprouted. The leaves, unlike the description here, were gigantic, rivaling/exceeding my broccoli leaves in size - they are huge. I've saved them all as well but as they are so large now they and the stems especially are quite bitter, going to try in stir fry. I grew mine in mushroom composted soil, all organic. These are very pest resistant as far as I can tell, little to no damage on leaf and none on the actual bulb. The leaves from a very young size are completely waterproof which is neat - water beads right off them down to the bulb meaning less chance of sun dmg from water droplets. Dunno what else to say, glad I picked these up and will be letting some go to seed, and planting more next yr!
