@InvaderXan I've never seen them sold in shops, which is why I haven't tried it since I was 7 and my parents grew it for us. They taste a bit like broccoli and cabbage, which makes sense since they're the same species :) I also love them because of how cool they look, I'm thinking of even growing them on the front yard because they look kinda decorative. They're probably my favourite vegetable.
@Some_Person @InvaderXan they don't jive with factory farming. They take up too much space per plant. I've actually seen them in a few shops in recent years, but they can't hold a candle to garden fresh. (Like most thinks lol) P.s. if you've eaten a broccoli stalk, you know a good approximation to it's flavor.
The Dutch had a movement that translates to "old vegetables" - that is, encouraging people to grow eat and enjoy vegetables that have otherwise fallen out of fashion. So a lot of fancy Dutch restaurants will serve vegetables that I can't identify. I don't remember kohlrabi specifically, but I approve of the idea.

Seasonal variations are a thing I like a lot. It was something I really liked in Japan. Certain fruit, for instance, are only available at certain times of year, and they match the seasons. In Springtime, you start finding nashi on sale in groceries. In early Summer, it's biwa season.
And it's great. It makes those things feel a bit more special than just having them available anytime.
