The true and popular Italian heirloom with spiraling, apple-green heads that are so superbly flavored. Its fractal form is a fascinating logarithmic Fibonacci spiral. This variety is widely grown in northern Italy. A must with many of the finest chefs.

Review:

Been growing this in an aquaponics system. Plants them after germination into the system back on January 21, 2019. It was a bit slow to start, but quickly grew to be a large and hearty plant. My aquaponics system has 6 hours of LED light at night, and 3 hours of sunlight through a windows during the day. I had read the reviews here about the heads being problematic to get to grow, but had hoped an indoor aquaponics system would yield different results. As of today 6/13/2019, no heads or buds have formed. And ill be clearing it out to make way for something else if there is still nothing in 2 more weeks. Cant recommend this plant as I was unable to form any heads or buds. But I may try again next season.

What are the pros? Extremely easy to grow

Review:

I was pretty excited to try out this variety and the plant started off very strong, grew quickly and I was pretty happy. Then all of my other broccoli varieties grew heads and were harvested before this one even started putting one out. I was literally about to give up on it when I noticed a tiny head starting which it never grew very large it was about the size of a softball and had somewhat of a spiraled pattern going. Just harvested it yesterday and have tried it yet

Review:

Like others, this grew massive plants, but no heads. I'm going to have a bi** of a time pulling these stalks out of the ground. They were about 3" in diameter, and plants were close to four feet tall, but spindly heads. So I cut them up and fed them to the Vermicomposter

What are the pros? Big healthy plants

What are the cons? not a single head formed

Review:

I read the reviews on this, did the vernalization that was recommended and got nothing. Sometimes we just have to accept that there are certain things that just can't grow in certain climates.

What are the pros? plants are strong and huge

What are the cons? no heads

Review:

I have grown regular broccoli successfully, but not these. Plants look healthy and strong, but did not flower, no heads at all. By now the temperatures are much too hot. So I give up on them. Could very well be that the climate here is just not right.
