Review:

Waltham 29 was a great choice this year! I live in zone 6, right at the border between 6A and 6B. I started this broccoli inside mid-March, and set it out a month later in mid-April under summerweight fabric (not frost protection, insect protection). A semi-harsh frost at the end of April did a little damage but every plant came back with vengence! Now it is early June and I have been picking huge (up to 10 inches across) heads of delicious broccoli! Ive kept the plants under the fabric all this time to keep pests (esp. caterpillars) off and it has worked, no bug damage! From seed it has taken nearly 3 months till harvest, but from transplant not even 2! I think that is quick for broccoli especially an old timer like this one! I definitely recommend this one and I always recommend insect protection like fabric over any kind of chemical or organic pesticide. Happy Growing!!

Review:

This broccoli did well even as a spring crop in zone 7a, even though it takes longer to mature than other varieties. Worth the wait, it produced large, attractive heads. Excellent flavor, looking forward to seeing how it does in fall and for overwintering.

Review:

Grew this variety for the first time this year and was blown away by the taste. If you ever taste this variety straight out of the garden, it will be the standard for which you measure all other broccoli.

Review:

We started these inside in March last year and they were still producing shoots in Sept. The big heads formed in June. The flavor was great and we froze 9 gallons for winter. It froze very well and held it's flavor. We were very happy with it.
