What are the pros? Lots of florets
What are the cons? Long time to mature
Planted these indoors around the beginning of May and planted the first week of June. Next year I will start seeds earlier. It took off, and the first few broccoli heads we got in August were compact and pungent, almost sulphuric. Given, this is a cold weather crop and it was a VERY hot and dry summer, so it may have effected its growth habit. It REALLY took off once the weather cooled off. Broccoli started sprouting in shoots everywhere off the main plant and tasted MUCH better. I know that Kale, and all other cool weather crops, can also be finicky about the temperature when it comes to flavor, so no surprise there. I think ONE single plant produces enough to make 2-4 batches of brocolli salad for a family of four as the broccoli seems to ramp up production in Sept-Oct. I probably would have gotten a little more if the deer hadn't finally hopped the fence. Never got any large head on this, just a bunch of smaller florets which are perfect for easy use. The stems would make great slaw
