Downunder we also call it kohlrabi.  Apparently it means īcabbage turnip ī.  Like in USA it īs not common here.

Hi Ladybird
 
I have no idea why it is not popular here.  The supermarket does stock it but not in huge quantities like the more common vegetables.  Maybe its alien appearance is a bit to scary for the average Ozzie consumer...
 
I do have some summer recipes for kohlrabi so maybe I should try them out while our hot weather continues to linger.
 
Cheers

In Canada, I īve always seen it in the produce section but I don īt know anybody who ever has actually eaten it... sort of like Kumquats... nice looking fruit, but nobody ever buys it. lol

Zora, I know exactly what you mean.  I too donīt know anyone who has ever bought or eaten it. 
 
And you know what, those unusual sorts of fruit and veg, that most people donīt buy, seem to stay on the shelves for soooooo long until they are all withered and wrinkly and when they are just about unrecognizable as anything remotely tasty and edible they get a discount sticker slapped on them before being thrown out on the rubbish heap way past their time.  Such a shame.  We should be more brazen and experiment.
