Description

Broccoli - Romanesco - Brassica oleracea (Botrytis Group)

Annual Heirloom. The broccoli and cauliflower families both lay claim to this dramatic vegetable. Discovered in 16th century Italy, it sends up small spirals that curve to form a large spiral head. Break it apart and eat it raw or steamed. Prized for its delicate, nutty flavor as well as its vivid, light green color. May reach 3' before producing.

Did You Know? The broccoli head shape is a fractal called the Fibonacci Spiral.

Soil and Water: Prefers nearly neutral soils rich in organic matter. Water moderately and evenly. Can be sensitive to boron deficiencies. Lime the soil to a pH of 7.0 or higher in areas with clubroot problems.

Planting and Growing: Time indoor sowing so that plants are no more than 5 weeks old at transplant time. Sow outdoors when soil temperatures are at least 60°F. A temperamental plant, sensitive to under watering or under fertilization. Side dress with compost in mid-season. Use row cover early on to block cabbage family pests.

Harvesting and Storage: Cut heads when they are fully developed. The plant will not re-sprout new heads. Eat raw or lightly cooked for best flavor and color.
