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!

Review:

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.

Review:

Small yield in the north where it's treated purely as an annual. I like the plant a lot, but wintering over would be difficult here.

Review:

I planted these in the spring, and they grew slow, and not very productive. I left them in my garden over winter and surprise, I had the tastiest most vigourous broccoli in early spring the next year. The stems are more delicious than the buds. My son said," mom, this is so good!" What do you know a kid excited about vegetables! I will be growing this in my winter garden from now on for spring harvest. Vancouver, WA
