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.

What are the pros? Great taste and color

What are the cons? Large plant small heads

Review:

Although I loved the ultimate taste, these plants not only took forever to grow and occupied a significant part of the garden- )huge healthy plants) but produced very small heads. It really was not worth the square footage they occupied. The eventual product was a head roughly the size of a grapefruit. The color was excellent, the taste nutty when roasted but given the late maturity and the gargantuan plants producing one tiny head each.. I wouldn’t plant these again. Perhaps if you have unlimited space it would be worth it... but even then I wouldn’t recommend this varietal given its limited productivity. Too bad as I really wanted to love it

What are the pros? Grew Impressively Big

What are the cons? 2 plants. No Heads

Review:

I wish I'd read the reviews before I spent the entire summer growing two of these. They were impressively enormous and VERY healthy. And yet, after they took 2 large spots in my garden, there were no heads to eat, whatsoever. "So what", I said. I'll eat the stalks n stuff in my stir fries. They were bitter and basically inedible unless you're a marmot. First broccoli EVER. Worst broccoli EVER!!!

What are the pros? Grows

What are the cons? Doesn’t produce broccoli

Review:

Maybe it’s too hot here in Austin? The plant grew incredibly well. It’s about 2 1/2 feet tall, 3 feet wide....but no broccoli is showing up. Just leaves. I have 4 plants in this condition. If it needs a pollinator, it’s not that. We have bee hives too. It’s now almost the end of September and the plant is still thriving but still no edible part. Waaah.

What are the pros? Started very easy

What are the cons? Didn’t produce well.

Review:

I was very disappointed that 5 out of 6 starts didn’t grow a crown. The one that did was small and looked like a regular broccoli crown. Will give it a try in late summer/early fall.

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.
