Community Supported Agriculture (CSA): Kohlrabi? What is that?

This will be our 3rd year participating in a CSA through Edible Acres.  I love having to use what is in season and try new veggies.  This year, the new one is Kohlrabi, the purple one pictured above. (That is an 8-Ball Zucchini next to it.  Wonderful sliced thickly and grilled.) It also comes in green.   Kohlrabi is a close relative to broccoli and has a very subtle broccoli-cabbage-like taste.  I have only tried it peeled and sliced on salad so far and it is yummy!  The leaves are also edible and can used like kale.  Here is some more information on Kohlrabi.  Please be adventurous and try some.
