11 - Kohlrabi

 

Village of Bodice, Slovakia

 

One of the staples in an everyday diet, Kohlrabi are grown

in villager' gardens.  Mostly used in soups, the vegetable also

makes for a tasty snack.  The villagers are very particular about

their Kohlrabi.  The vegetable's fibrous inside gets hard and

tasteless if overripe.  In the cities, people buy Kohlrabi at the market.
