king kohl?

Lisa grows broccoli rabe successfully in the hot southern states.
I wonder if it is the same as kohl rabi that we grow in wet England?

This is the first year we've tried kohl rabi. The plants were brought on in the greenhouse and then planted out in the spring. They've not needed any special treatment and have produced these rounded vegetables.

We peeled, sliced and stir-fried ours. I think they will need a lot of extra flavouring adding. As predicted, they taste and have the texture of the swollen stems of broccoli.

As I said in my previous post about kohl rabi, this is what passes for food for us vegetarians!!!
