An English heirloom variety, bred for overwintering. Produces lots of purple broccoli sprouts in the spring. Grows slowly through the winter; very frost hardy. A great variety that is very hard to find in this country; delicious!

What are the pros? little maintenance needed

What are the cons? slow development

Review:

This plant needs to overwinter, or at least be in a more chilly climate, before it starts to produce spears (take note everyone posting from Texas and Arizona that this is an English variety bred in English weather). Planted in Nov 2014 and heads just started appearing in late April. SF in the fog didn't quite provide the winter that is recommended for these, but out of three plants the one in the appropriate spot in the garden (shade problems) did just fine, you just have to be patient and fertilize accordingly. If you want to grow sprouting broccoli and don't live in the correct climate try these: www.highmowingseeds.com/organic-non-gmo-seeds-santee-f1-hybrid.html

I live just outside of Tucson, Arizona and started this crop in September. I had hoped for heads in February or March with no success. The plants got huge but that was unfortunately it.

I put them out in mid September 2013(6 plants)hoping for a bounty. I am trying to get rid of the tree like structures now (mid July 2014). During this long growing season; may be I got half a head of broccoli combined from six monster broccoli trees.

Review:

This broccoli was a wonderful surprise in early spring when it started sprouting purple broccoli all over. Something in the garden to eat when nothing else was growing! The broccoli was very sweet and tender. The plants grew huge! I neglected my plants somewhat and they thrived anyway. I let them go to seed so the bees would have something to eat and now I have a very sturdy broccoli volunteering all over my garden! Make sure no other member of the broccoli family is blooming at the same time (kale, cabbage...) One packet is all you need for life! It's so easy to keep the seeds :) thanks for the wonderful product!

Review:

I grew this in zone 8 a couple of years ago and plan to again. I will use a medium tomato cage to keep it upright in our windy weather, but it is a handsome and tasty plant.
