Can Guinea Pigs Eat Kohlrabi?

If you have guinea pigs, we recommend you visit your local farmer's market sometime. You can find fruits and vegetables that you don't see at your local grocery store there. For instance, the humans just found us something called kohlrabi for us to try. Kohlrabi is a funny-looking vegetable with two edible parts: the leaves and the round part. The humans fed us the leaves one day and the round bulb the next day so as not to overfeed us. The bulb must be peeled first.

Kohlrabi is similar to cabbage, and so should be fed sparingly about 2 times per week.

Day 1: The leaves. They're delicious!
Day 2: The bulb. Also delicious!
More kohlrabi, please!

For being two delicious foods in one, Kohlrabi gets 5/5 stars!


  1. I know this is an old post, but I just gave my piggies Kohlrabi for the first time and they loved it! We're part of a CSA/Community Supported Agriculture, and we get some veg that no one likes, but the piggies! (I do google to see if it's safe for them first! guineapigcagesdotcom has a great list hehehe) We're happy they're happy. Now if it would just dry up here long enough for the farmers to bring hay in!

    1. We do love the food chart and often cite it in our posts. However, it doesn't cover every food, so sometimes we have to do our research.

      A CSA sounds like a great deal for the piggies! :)
