Early Fall Rapini
Broccoli Raab
(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. Although related, it is not the same as broccoli.

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 of ours is simply to sautée with garlic in olive oil and season with some gourmet salt. The flavor is slightly nutty with a pleasant 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.

With just one packet of seeds, I've had this rapini for dinner every week for four months. I planted these in early fall and they're still putting out new florets in February!
