What are the pros? none

What are the cons? did not produce a head

Review:

I decided to switch to heirloom seeds from hybrid seeds and seedlings this year to begin learning how to seed save. I tried 2 rounds of this broccoli, early spring and again in fall, totaling more that 40 plants. The plants grew strong and healthy, but never produced more than a 1 inch head if any at all. I was looking forward to freezing broccoli this year, and I have none. Very disappointing.

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!!
