Exploding Kohlrabi!

I was picking through the garden choosing some items for Father's Day and noticed that a couple of my kohlrabis had exploded. We have had quite a bit of rain lately, including an overnight storm that accumulated 5 inches of rain, so I think they literally just burst from absorbing water too fast. This happens pretty often with tomatoes, but I'd never seen it in kohlrabi.

This particular fruit (head?, root?, tuber?) wasn't even salvageable since it was infested with slugs throughout.

Luckily, I caught this one in time.

I wasn't expecting there to be much difference, but my white vienna kohlrabi is sizing up much faster than my purple kohlrabi.
