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? Learned something

Review:

Sorry to write a review before I have grown this. I’m going to be trying to overwinter this broccoli this year and I have been reading the reviews because I heard it’s pretty finicky. Others have mentioned the vernalization issue, so read the other reviews for more info there, but I was reading the Johnny’s catalogue and came across this useful tidbit: for an item they have called “early sprouting burgundy,” they recommend pinching out the apical bud at first emergence to encourage abundant side shoot growth. They also recommend this for Di Cicco which I have always been disappointed with, so I’m going to give Di Ciccio another try even though I had sworn it off and I’m going to try pinching with half of my purple sprouting and I’ll let you know how it goes in spring.

Review:

I was really excited to try this one since I'm a huge broccoli lover and this did not disappointe . Mine grew about three feet the taste was amazing. Growing it was fairly easy as I started the seeds in my own organic compost mix with no issues .Our weather here for spring is a bit wonky one day it's hot the next it's cold ..soo much rain but this did better than I expected . Heat became more regular so I let go to bolt to see how it grew out and it was beautiful with bright yellow flowers ,smelled amazing in my garden and the bee's loved about as much as I did lol .

What are the pros? Truly overwinters

What are the cons? None

Review:

I also planted in spring and saw no broccoli heads. Then once cold weather set in, just a few heads. But these huge plants began really producing once it got cold. I've had fresh broccoli since December, and the plants are still producing. Even after snow and heavy frosts plus gray skies. I plan to plant again.

What are the pros? Pretty, germinates well

What are the cons? No production

Review:

All seeds germinated well and grew quickly. Had to fight cabbage moths all summer but was successful in seeing plants alive. However, absolutely no broccoli heads. Not one. By the end of the summer, I had huge, healthy plants with thick stems and huge healthy leaves, but not one head of broccoli. So disappointing. Won't grow again.

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.
