Brassica oleracea
Green Sprouting Broccoli Seed (60-90 days)

This is the mainstay of our gardens. Our strain of Calabrese is VERY frost tolerant. As I type this four days after Christmas and nine days after a week long ice storm, WE STILL HAVE BROCCOLI. The hybrid broccoli froze solid.

Start Green Sprouting broccoli early in the season and by early summer you will have tons of sweet broccoli. Harvest the central head then lay the plant over on its side for an explosion of side shoots that will just keep coming till the heat of summer.

If you are in a relatively cool area as we are, green sprouting broccoli may continue to produce for 6 months or longer. We don't plant a fall crop we just keep this one crop trimmed and enjoy the rewards. You just can't beat Calabrese.

1947 Pike Seed Company. says about Green Sprouting Calabrese ...

Planting Tips:

Start spring seedlings 4-6 weeks before last frost.  Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost.  Plant in ground when 3” tall and bury stem 1” deeper than they were in your pots.  When transplanting, enrich soil with a little blood and bone meal.  Once main head is cut, harvest side shoots for several weeks.

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
