Green Sprouting Calabrese

80 days — 'Green Sprouting Calabrese' is an old standard variety that has been a mainstay in many people's gardens year in and year out. This is partly because it does not mature uniformly and partly because it produces many side shoots. Perfect for home garden, fresh use.

The plants grow tall (thirty to thirty-six inches), erect and leafy. They produce central heads that are bluish-green in color and average from three to five inches across. If planted early in the spring, the main head can be harvested in the summer, the plants laid down, and side shoots harvested for continuing weeks. Frost resistant. Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 125 to 175 seeds.
Interesting broccoli
This broccoli never did form a main head for me. It sent up endless little florets all over. The bud size is large, so it almost looks like raab more than the usual broccoli. I didn't get much at any one time on each plant, so I would suggest planting several. The flavor is good and even the stems were tender. Each floret is borne on a new stem, so they don't have a chance to get thick or woody. I like this different kind of broccoli, but I should have planted more.

Nice Variety
Started some in the house, and some direct seeded. Both did well, made for spread out harvesting. Tasty!
