Description
The amazing Broccoli Romanesco!

Romanesco broccoli, also known as Romanesque cauliflower or simply as Romanesco, is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is chartreuse in colour. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. (Each section is made up of an identical form to that of the largest floret right down to the smallest part.)

When compared to a traditional cauliflower, its texture as a vegetable is more crunchy, and its flavour is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.
As a vegetable, Romanesco is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fibre and carotenoids.

This is not genetically modified but is a natural occurring form that has been bred by growers. Simply amazing and very striking on the plate! I can imagine posh restaurants everywhere will be serving these very soon!

SEEDS ROUND, DARK BLACK, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Broccoli is a cool season crop, when grown in temperatures that are too hot for it, they will bolt and flower instead of forming heads. This variety has large pale green spiralling heads growing to 20cm. As with most vegetables, Broccoli grows best in a spot with full sun. However, when the temperatures start to rise creating some shade for them should help prevent bolting.

Protection is usually suggested to keep your crop safe from aphids and caterpillars.

Broccoli plants shouldn’t need supplemental feeding if your soil is rich. If they look like they need a boost or you want to hasten maturity, hit them with some nitrogen. Fish emulsion is good for this.

Sow
Plant direct or raise seedlings in late Summer to Autumn. Plant 5mm deep, 50cm apart with 60cm between rows in well-draining soils rich in organic matter.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Seedlings can be transplanted into the garden once they have their first true leaves and are large enough to handle easily.

Germination
3-7 days at 8-30°C

Maturity
75-100 days.
