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!

What are the pros? Great tasting leaves

What are the cons? So long to mature (200 days)

Review:

Like several others, I planted these in the spring and they never developed a head. I later figured out that they are an overwinter variety, so, I'll plant again in a few weeks for a spring harvest. What I can say is the plants get HUGE. I didn't want to waste any of what I had grown this year so I tested some leaves and to my surprise, they are freaking delicious. They are the best tasting greens I have ever grown. That being said, they'll be on my spring planting list again as well.

Review:

I picked this variety because it looked exotic and I knew it would impress customers at the farmer's market. I planted around 150 plants and unfortunately none of them developed heads. The southern climate may be too hot for this variety in the spring. If you're a southerner and you are dead set on planting this, I suggest planting it in mid September.

Review:

Started these in pots inside in late March. Germination rate was high, but I lost a few when I moved them into the garden, not sure why. The first head appeared in late June, and was very small. I left it a couple of days hoping it would get bigger, and it went to seed. However, the others are now blooming (mid-late July) and are a good size. The key is to pick them as soon as the purple spreads from the center all the way to the edges, covering the white. The color is lovely, and the flavor excellent. They seem very pest resistant and sturdy once they get going.

Review:

This plant needs to overwinter, or at least be in a more chilly climate, before it starts to produce spears (take note everyone posting from Texas and Arizona that this is an English variety bred in English weather). Planted in Nov 2014 and heads just started appearing in late April. SF in the fog didn't quite provide the winter that is recommended for these, but out of three plants the one in the appropriate spot in the garden (shade problems) did just fine, you just have to be patient and fertilize accordingly. If you want to grow sprouting broccoli and don't live in the correct climate try these: www.highmowingseeds.com/organic-non-gmo-seeds-santee-f1-hybrid.html
