And they did look scary. Like something that had been left to sit too long and sprouted, lol.

I just finished a purple kohlrabi from the farmer's market. Tastes the same as the green ones, which I've only ever tried raw, never cooked. The taste and texture do remind me of broccoli stems or jicama.

You guys are a stitch. Kohlrabi, turnips, exotic?!? My grandma grew these things in her garden back in the 60s and I've been eating them my entire life, so I guess I never gave them much thought.

My little brother used to call Kohlrabi "Martian heads" and refused to eat them.

I kind of like Flying Spaghetti Monster as a description. Seems fitting.

By the way, they also taste great in a bechamel sauce.
