What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful, yummy
What are the cons? Takes long to mature
Planted starts of Purple Sicily out in April, and didn't get heads until July! I was ready to pull them as I assumed they were a flop. No way are these ready in 90 days. When they did finally did head up, they heads were small and weird, probably because it was 100 degrees F by then! The flavor and color are excellent though. I think this variety would be better for a fall crop or started really early in your greenhouse, like it February. Make sure soil is very fertile when planting so the plants can grow fast and avoid small heads. Worth it to see the neon magenta heads in the garden!
