Noolkol is known by many names in India like Kohlrabi or Gonth Gobi. It is characterised by the formation of knob (tuber) which arises from a thickening of the stem entirely above the ground. This knob is harvested for consumption as raw or cooked as vegetable. Tender leaves are also edible. The plant needs 6 to 8 hours of daily sunlight.

Good things take time and care

Take a seedling tray with medium sized cells & drainage holes at the

Sowing

  • Take a medium-sized seedling tray with moist coco-peat medium.
  • Put 2-3 seeds on the surface of the medium & push them inside the medium lightly
  • Cover the seed tray with paper or cloth for the first 2-3 days to encourage faster seed germination.
  • Mist the seed tray every morning with the help of a hand sprayer.
  • If seed beds are made outdoors, protect them from heavy rain or direct sunlight. With a temporary roof. Water it in the form of a light shower using a watering can.
  • Seeds will germinate within the first 6-8 days & tiny sprouts will be visible. Once seeds germinate, put the tray on an open partially sunny spot near the window
  • 21 to 25 days after the seed sowing, your seedlings will be ready to transplant in 12 inches deep and 14 inch wide container pots or raised beds.
  • Ideal planting mixture for Noolkol: 2 part garden soil & 1 part organic manure. Or, 1 part garden soil, 1 part coco-peat & 1 part Vermicompost.
  • Plant the seedlings minimum 2 feet apart (60x60 cm), from each other on raised beds or in a container.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Noolkol grows well under full sunlight in winters. (6 to 8 hours ofdaily minimum sunlight needed.)
  • Water your potted Noolkol plant every alternate day.
  • Water at the soil near the plant. Use a watering can and make sure that the plants get water in the form of the shower & not by a single flow.
  • You can also make provision for watering by watering by drip irrigation system for your raised beds. Avoid overwatering.
  • Add good quality organic manure in the soil with 2:1 ratio before transplanting the seedling. Organic fertilizer can be well rotten cow dung manure, farmyard manure, compost or Vermicompost.
  • Noolkol is a heavy feeder and responds well to manuring. Apply balanced liquid fertilizers or handful of vermicompost to each plant, every 15 days after transplantation.
  • Removing weeds around the plants is very important. As soon as weeds start appearing they should be uprooted.
  • (110-120 days from seed sowing) 85 to 90 days after transplantation, ‘Noolkol heads’ will be ready to harvest. You can get a single Noolkol per plant. Harvest the Noolkol when it is full sized, firm & solid.
  • The knobs are harvested by cutting the stem just below it by a sharp knife or sickle before they are fully grown.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep

Common Problems

Why has my plant not formed the Noolkol knob?
Noolkol thrives best in relatively cool, moist climates. It grows well in monthly average temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees. If day temperatures are too high, the Noolkol knob will not be formed. Therefore it is recommended to grow Noolkl in winters of India.
Why are my plants producing distorted knobs?
The knobs may become elongated in close spacing due to lack of light as in knobs growing in a shade. Cracking of knobs also occurs if the long dry spell is followed by sudden watering because of increased root pressure.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I harvest Noolkol knobs?

A good size of Noolkol knob is that of a cricket ball, as at that stage it is tender & succulent. Don't allow knobs to grow too large before lifting, as they soon become coarse, fibrous & thus inedible.

What type of planting mixture does the Noolkol need?

Noolkol can be grown on all types of soils. Soil rich in manures and fertilizers produces excellent knobs. It does not grow well in highly acidic soil.

How often do you need to water the Noolkol plant?

Noolkol requires continuous supply of moisture for uniform growth and development of the knob. Make sure the soil remains moist all the time. Daily watering is recommended for potted plants.
