Young Kohlrabi aren't technically babies but without considering them as such I couldn't use the dreaded "Where do babies come from question?" that almost all parents dread answering. Kohlrabi is a member of the Anthophyta, a phylum of flowering plants. Therefore it reproduces sexually through seeds. Kohlrabi is a vegetable, not a fruit so the seed is not borne inside the vegetable.  WildCourtesy of gravitywave of - Kohlrabi growing in a garden Kohlrabi will flower and produce pollen that can be carried to other plants by other organisms such as insects. One example of an insect that may aid in the reproduction of Kohlrabi is the European Honey Bee.  The seeds will then sprout when conditions are favorable (eg. moist). Kohlrabi is also a commercial vegetable so seeds are harvested with the vegetables and saved to be planted during the next growing season.

Now that you know quite a bit about Kohlrabi, lets see how it interacts with some other organisms. Or, as always you can go back to the main page.
