90 days. A nutritious, richly flavored and high-yielding broccoli rabe from Puglia region, Italy. This variety yielded more and larger heads than others we trialed. Plants average 2-3' tall. This gourmet brassica is a delicacy in Puglia, where it is used in a range of dishes, often sauteed with garlic, and drizzled with a bit of olive oil as a side dish or atop good quality bread. A famous Puglia dish is broccoli rabe with orecchiette pasta--simply sublime!
