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. 48-85 days from transplant. ±7,000 seeds/oz.

Start Indoors: 6-8 weeks before last frost

Germination: 3-10 Days

Plant Outdoors: 24” Apart

Light: Full Sun

Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Plant out just before the last frost. Broccoli prefers cool temperatures and a regular supply of water. In many regions, it can be grown as both a spring and fall crop.
