What is this veggie?

This plant came in the seeds with the kohlrabi. It started much like kohlrabi but it is not. The stalks taste like broccoli with a spicy after bite. Any help is appreciated.

Could it be rutabaga? Do you see any sign of root swelling? Purple or yellowish rounded top?

Re: What is this veggie?

are the leaves at all hairy? if not, my guess is collards. if so, more like turnip or rutabaga.

OK IS THIS an overgrown turnip or an undergrown rutabaga? I'm used to the yellow fleshed rutabaga. This one was white inside.

...I got myself in trouble this year by deciding to "get rid of" all the old seeds circa 5 years ago or older by simple expedient of sowing them wherever without marking. :roll: I *thought* the rutabaga variety I had was Laurentian... But I might have received a different variety in trade. I had quite a few different varieties of turnips.
