'Early Fall Rapini'
(Brassica rapa Ruvo Group)

55 days — Rapini is also known as Broccoli Raab, Broccoletti, Broccoletto, Broccoli di Rape, Cime di Rapa, Rappi, and in Naples, Friarielli. 

Sown in the late summer into early fall, the tender leafy shoots and flowering heads of this early bolting variety are harvested before the flowers open. The plants thrive in cooler temperatures (60 to 65ºF) and grow eighteen to twenty four inches in height.

As part of the cabbage family, it is related to, but its flavor is sharper than, broccoli. Rapini is generally used as cooking greens but can be enjoyed steamed, grilled and sautéed. A quick, favorite recipe is simply to sautéed with garlic in olive oil and season with some gourmet salt. The flavor is slightly nutty with a nice bitter component.  If the flavor is too strong for you, try blanching.

Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is about 200 seeds.

Easy to grow
This was one of the first seeds to sprout in my garden, and it just kept growing! The spicy leaves work well with radish greens and arugula in cooking. It does tend to bolt fast, so you don't have long to catch the seed heads while they look like broccoli but the leaves are really what you use anyway. Plant a few seeds each week for constant harvest.

This one is a keeper.
Wow. Just wow. Perfect germination, indifferent to weather, no pest or disease problems at all. Heavy producer, fast grower. If you like this stuff, this one is a keeper.
