Brassica oleracea

This early variety of Broccoli produces tightly packed, blue-green flower heads on strong short stems. Best picked regularly to promote new shoots, this vegetable keeps its crisp texture & strong flavor when steamed or quickly wok fried. Broccoli wants well manured, friable, moist soil with extra lime. An Italian heirloom broccoli dating from 1890. Compact 5-7.5 cm plant, 60 to 90cm in height, that produces a 10cm central head. After the central head is cut, many side shoots follow. Heads are spread out over a period of time making a long harvest season. Great for freezing. 48-85 days from transplant.
