What are the pros? Dependability, taste,

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is a GREAT variety for us down here in SETexas. I plant it in September and in a couple of months start harvesting. It produces all winter for me. One nice sized head and then MANY small shoots. The taste is very good but of course needs cool, wet weather. I see on another review it was bitterish which I am sure was because of hot weather.

What are the pros? Lots of florets

What are the cons? Long time to mature

Review:

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

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have grown this for several years. The central head is good sized. The size and number of side shoots are fantastic. The shoots, flowers and leaves are very sweet. This is delicious and tender, raw or lightly cooked. We will continue to plant this every year for both a spring and fall harvest.

What are the pros? Fast strong grower

What are the cons? No heads

Review:

Like the others, my plants never grew a head worth picking. It was my first time growing broccoli, so I wasn't sure I did something wrong. It survived bug infestations, and grew strong stalks but there was never a head to pick, so I just left it in the bed for the bees. I have seeds left over so I will try them again in a different location, along with a new variety to see if I get different results.

What are the pros? Produces all season, into fall

What are the cons? Smaller central head

Review:

I have grown this heirloom for years in New Hampshire, and in Montana. No matter whether acidic, moist rich loam or alkaline dry clay, it consistently produces reasonably early with a 6" central head, then shoots side sprouts all the rest of the season, past frost, getting tastier as it goes! The side shoots are good-sized for cooking or salads and delicious! They come so fast, it is hard to keep ahead of them from bolting. I love that I don't have to succession plant to have a continual supply of delicious broccoli all season long. It is carefree, except for cabbage worms... Suggest floating row cover, or occasional sprinkling of wood ash.
