Review:

First off, it is not broccoli it is cauliflower. Started ten plants indoors in February, transplanted in March. Plants grew large and healthy, up to four and a half feet tall. None formed heads. They grew through the summer and attracted tons of cabbage worms. I killed them all by hand but had some help from wasps and yellow jacket. I even fed one a dead caterpillar by hand. Through the summer, two plants suddenly wilted and it clearly wasn't a water issue so I immediately tore them out. In fall, one started to form a head but the plant just rotted. It started with a brown spot about a foot up on the stem. Eventually it went all the way through the stem. People said below that it doesn't breed true. I never got any heads but some had large broad leaves and some had very thin down-curved leaves that were arranged obliquely along the stem. I think the latter are the pure bred ones. Only grow this if you are really confident in growing CAULIFLOWER!
