A fine experiment
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 0.0

What are the pros? Easy to grow, hardy

What are the cons? Small heads for large plants


These grew nicely for me in a large container garden. The heads never get large. I lost some to bolting because I kept waiting for larger size. But of the ones I did harvest, flavor is good, and they grow easily with minimal care. The plants themselves are rather large. In the future, I will only use these when I have lots of garden space. Unlike other plants from Baker Creek that really shine, the broccoli tastes about the same as from a grocery store, so in the future I will use my limited space for veggies that really reward home growing with better flavor like snap peas or radishes. This is not a critique; the broccoli is fine and grew well, even in a large pot. But with limited urban space I will not make this my first pick. I just wish I had more land! Growing in 7b, the California Bay Area.
