Early Purple Sprouting

200 days — A very old variety, used for over wintering for spring harvest.  It was once quite popular and grown extensively throughout Europe.  According to MM. Vilmorin-Andrieux in "The Vegetable Garden" (1885), there were more than forty different forms grown in England alone.

'Early Purple Sprouting' produces many secondary shoots with small purple heads for continuous cutting. The photographs were taken on April 2 and are of plants that were over-wintered in the field.

Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 125 to 175 seeds.

Not for our climate
I grew these over the winter, starting around August. The plant went to seed, but never formed heads. It did taste very sweet, including the young leaves, and if the weather was colder over here I would definitely grow it again.

I plant lots of things and then forget where I put where, so it's always a surprise. I planted this in a raised bed and kept wondering why such a huge, beautiful broccoli plant wasn't producing any heads. Thankfully, I didn't pull it up, but left it to overwinter in the garden. By early March, it produced pretty purple tops for us to munch on. They were a little sweet, without any of the pungency that broccoli can sometimes have. Even my vegetable hating sons loved it, so I'll definitely be growing more. It was worth the wait!
