What are the pros? Grow fast

What are the cons? Lost of pests, tough stalks

Review:

Bought these last year in 2018. I tried growing these in big pots 2 times. The first time I grew it too late in late spring. I got a harvest, but the stalks were really tough. Too tough to eat, even after cooking. After one small harvest, they were inundated with aphids. So this year (2019) I grew it in several pots in early spring. Things looked great but when I went to harvest them (about 5 inch tall stalks), again the stalks were too hard. But as I looked closer, I could see the cabbage moth had paid them a visit! All the plants had little, hard-to-see, velvety green caterpillars. Needless to say, I did not eat any. But even if I didn't get the moth, I know they would have been too tough as they were hard to cut. I really want to grow rapini successfully as I LOVE it. But for now I will just buy it at the store until I can get pest covers and figure out how to grow them tender.

Love this variety. It’s been a staple in my garden for years. I plant it early and harvest around June. Love the flavor. Freezes well and we enjoy it all winter.

Review:

I planted these in my small plot garden and they took off! I had 4 of them and they grew humongous! I let them grow to about 3 feet in height and then harvested them all. Saut?s and were delicious with garlic. Next season I’ll keep them small, perhaps the leaves will be a bit more tender.

What are the pros? Fairly heat tolerant

What are the cons? Can’t think of any

Review:

Started indoors in peat with a Nanodome and heating mat. They germinated in a day! I planted them outdoors in my raised beds in early April, and I am harvesting the plants now in mid May. On the few hot days we’ve had I covered the soil around them with white plastic to reflect the sun, and thankfully they didn’t bolt. Large, delicious plants that pests didn’t touch. As an Italian American I was raised eating Broccoli Rabe, and this is as tasty as it comes! It’s an acquired taste, so for those unaccustomed to it, it may be too strong for you. Highly recommend this variety.

Review:

had some broccolini once and really liked it & this was this closet thing I could find, so bought some. started easy indoors, transplanted well (all lived), like the taste, keeps producing like crazy, I have to harvest every day- nice problem to have. looking forward to planting even more in the fall. Definitely will be ordering more of this. easy to prepare by sauteing in olive oil with a little salt.
