Classic open pollinated cool climate broccoli. Best harvested through to mid Spring. Heat sensitive, so not a summer variety. Produces large main heads and many side shoots.

The plant from which modern broccoli is derived first grew in the wild in the Mediterranean region and in Asia Minor. Broccoli gradually spread to the rest of Europe and to the New World, where Thomas Jefferson included this strange new vegetable in his experimental garden.

The Italians appreciated it so much that it got the name “Italian asparagus.” After World War I, Italian brothers Stefano and Andrea D’Arrigo brought their Sicilian variety of broccoli and began growing it in San Jose, California; they later shipped it to Boston’s North End, where it established a quickly expanding market.

ABOUT 100 SEEDS, REDDISH BROWN, MEDIUM SIZED, 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 sized heads, followed by side shoots extending its harvest. 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 Winter, early Spring or Autumn. This is a very cold tolerant variety. 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
89-90 days.
