Ready very early
and produces for a long time.
Heads are on long stems above the foliage-easy to see and harvest and safer from slugs and snails.
Small organic farmer Jonathan Spero of Lupine Knoll Farm and O.S.U. developed this excellent new open-pollinated broccoli.
BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea var. italica
Start seeds in pot or flats 1-2" apart. Transplant seedlings 15" apart into well-prepared soil, after digging in compost and lime, if needed. Sown in flats late March, should mature by the end of June. Produces many smaller sprouts rather than one huge-head-cut the center head before individual buds get loose and open; this will be followed by a crop of side-shoots. Withstands rainy weather; may be started in late summer for a fall crop; winter hardy in zones 8-10.
