What are the pros? Strong plants

What are the cons? Small heads, very few sides

Review:

These came up great, strong plants with no problems- That's where my enjoyment ends. Most of the plants made a central head less than 5". The side shoots are very tiny, IF I get any at all. These take a huge amount of space in the garden and put out very little edible parts.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Didn't form heads

Review:

These plants grew great from early-start seedlings, but didn't form any heads at all. That was not the results I was hoping for. We're in zone 5.

What are the pros? Seeds sprouted quickly

What are the cons? Heads never formed

Review:

I had very poor results with this variety last summer. After the seeds sprouted just fine and I transplanted the healthy seedlings to my garden, the plants grew nice and strong to ~ 2 1/2 - 3 ft. However, I can't begin to describe how disappointed I was that they never formed any heads. That's never happened to me with broccoli before, and it was the first time I planted this variety.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very resilient

What are the cons? none

Review:

2013 was my second year growing this plant in my garden and I must say it performed well both years. I planted 18 of this variety in a raised bed and they grew wonderfully. PLEASE HARVEST THE LEAVES TO EAT LIKE MUSTARD TURNIP AND COLLARD GREENS!!!! More leaves will be available for harvest within 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. One of my staple plants!!

What are the pros? Easy to grow, hardy

What are the cons? Small heads for large plants

Review:

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.
