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.
All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

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.
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.
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.
Regionally in India, Noolkol is also known as Kohlrabi, ol kopi, monj-hakh, nol khol, navalkol.
