This is a very traditional organic broccoli seed variety that produces a small 3 - 4" main head that projects well above the foliage, followed by a large yield of side-shooting spears. 

Habit is non-uniform in maturity, which results in a long harvest period. 

This is a favorite multi-cut variety. 

You should harvest the main head when it is 3" in diameter or less to encourage heavier side shoot production. 

Use the young leaves like collard greens once the head is a quarter developed. Plants are light green and of medium height. May be planted in the early spring or late summer or early fall.

45-48 days to harvest. 

A real Italian Fine Experience !

  • Sow directly into the garden or trays. Cover seeds with 1/8 inch of fine soil. Keep soil moderately moist during germination. (Broccoli can be sown in spring, in midsummer for autumn crop)
  • Space plants 18 to 24 inches apart in rows spaced 2 to 3 feet apart depending upon available room.
  • Thin or transplant seedlings when 2 inches tall.
  • Broccoli grows best in a mostly sunny location during the cooler parts of the growing season. Prefers fairly rich soil kept fairly moist. Side shoots will be produced in abundance as soon as the main head is cut.
