An Italian broccoli introduced to the United States in 1890. Compact 2-3' plants produce a 4" central head. After the central head is harvested, a second yield of edible side shoots will develop. It is quite variable in its maturity, which creates an extended harvest time—a quality home gardeners may appreciate.

Growing Instructions

From Transplant (recommended for shorter seasons). Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep, 4-6 weeks before last frost. Harden off. Plant out just before the last frost, 18-24" apart in-row and between rows. Broccoli prefers cool temperatures and a regular supply of water. In many regions it can be grown as both a spring and fall crop.
