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.

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.
