Recently we asked our readers to send us photos of their large or unusual produce. The photos are still coming. This week we’re sharing some people’s hefty kohlrabi.

The two young women cradling their big kohlrabi are Katie and April Highness of Dilworth.

They had a contest with their grandfather in Harvey to see who could grow the largest kohlrabi. The girls won with a vegetable that weighed 10½ pounds.

The other image shows Steven Schmitz of Wheaton, Minn., holding a pair of kohlrabi that won him awards for the largest and oddest vegetables at the Traverse County Fair.

We’ll have more unusual or interesting produce next Wednesday in the Life section. And if you have some impressive or curious produce to share with us, e-mail a photo and a little about it to Features Editor Robert Morast at rmorast@forumcomm.com.
