Another delicious heirloom originating from Italy. This plant is a magnificent old-fashioned variety that produces large 15cm blue-green heads and a proliferation of smaller heads along the stalk. Maturing in around 70 days, this is a good early or late variety.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Broccoli is a winter crop and is best started in mid to late autumn. Sow seed in trays about 6 weeks before planting out. Transplant baby plants when they are about 12cm tall into rows about 60cm apart. For best results plant in full sun in a rich soil. When the heads get large, plants can be staked to stop them from falling over. A good mulch will also maintain soil temperature and encourage growth.

    How to Harvest

    Harvest the main head whilst it is still tightly shaped. It is best to cut the stem about 12cm below the head. The plant will continue to produce smaller florettes along the stem and these can be coninuously harvested throughout the season.
