Easy and reliable

I've grown this broccoli for a few years now, and have been pleased with the results. It gives a nice central head and then smaller side shoots to enjoy for quite a while after the main head is harvested. You can also harvest and steam or sauté the leaves as you would kale or spinach.

Just planted today.

This came up for review, but I only just planted today. I am expecting wonderful things from these seeds as I have not had any issues with seeds from this store before.
