past Bratwurst and Sauerkraut: humans grocery shopping in Germany for the first time would possibly come across numerous strange veggies — white stalks, the black roots and mild green bulbs — in the clean produce segment and wonder: What are Spargel, Schwarzwurzeln and Kohlrabi? 

The latter, in step with Germany's Federal middle for food (BZfE), is a regular German vegetable this is in fact ate up more in Germany than anywhere else inside the world. It comes as no surprise that Germany is the world's largest kohlrabi manufacturer: The sweet, crunchy, low-calorie and nutrient-wealthy cabbage turnip has been cultivated in Germany since the sixteenth century. 

The name of this vegetable has even made it into English, Russian and japanese.
