Sativa Seeds – Sprouting Early Calabrese Broccoli – 2 Grams (GMO-FREE DECLARATION)
Germination Rate: 94%
Broccoli is an edible plant in the cabbage family whose large flowering head, stalk, and small associated leaves are eaten as a vegetable. Broccoli is classified to be in the “Italica cultivar “group of the species “Brassica oleracea”.
This variety has green florets and tender stalks, which ripen at the end of winter when hardly any other fresh vegetables are around.
Sprouting broccoli is the kind of variety you’ll see growing green heads, commonly available in grocery stores. The florets are usually smaller than more well-known varieties, but the taste is similar. People use sprouting broccoli as a side dish by itself or mixed in other dishes.
This form of broccoli is an extremely hardy vegetable and can withstand many weather conditions, hence its popularity with gardeners.
Once the centre cluster appears and slows its growth, your sprouting broccoli is ready for harvest. After the first harvest, more clusters will appear. You can harvest these later in the season.
(A head of the broccoli is the big flower portion at the end of the broccoli stalk. But when you cut the head apart into smaller pieces and remove the thick stock, you have broccoli florets)
We are pleased to take you on a quick tour and explain how to grow broccoli by yourself using seeds, simply by using Harraz farm and Garden’s experience and growing guidelines.
