What are the pros? Healthy plants, mild taste
What are the cons? Definitely no fractal heads!
Well, color me dissapointed. I've gotten some wonderful seeds from Baker's Creek, but this was a bust. We grew nearly two dozen big, healthy broccoli plants at two households, and not a single one had that fractal romanesco head. In fact, the heads were very loose, with much larger flower buds than anything I've seen on broccoli before. They taste great, but again, it was not at all the plant that was advertised/on the packet. The heads were so loose, in fact, that we've just allowed them to flower (I enjoy the flowers, personally--very sweet, very tender, great on salads/as a general garnish). The greens are nice, too, but we purchased these seeds for romanesco broccoli heads and not flowers and greens!
So, unfortunately, I can't recommend this item as is. I mean, unless you'd like a big batch of broccoli greens and very little to no broccoli head.
Would you recommend this product to a friend?
