Bouquets of  little broccolini 

with great fresh flavor in a hurry. 

The fastest-growing spring broccoli raab; its name means forty days.

Italian seed; we have not been happy with the raab seed available here, and found this traditional type from an Italian seed merchant.

BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica oleracea var. italica

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:

Start seeds in pots 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 well; may be started in late summer for a fall crop; can over winter in zone 8.

Tasty Even in the Fall
on 10/29/15 by Ken Renard in PA

I tried this in the fall in Northeast PA. We had warm temps and not enough rain it was still very good. Will be trying again in the spring. The lower stalk was a bit woody but the upper and leaves were very tender.
