Standard type, produces 4-8” green heads that are nicely flavored. Compact plants also produce some side shoots. Introduced in 1954. A favorite here at the farm.

What are the pros? Very sweet, nice-looking

What are the cons? Bolts very quickly

Review:

Very tasty, if you can get them to head. If you don't have a month or so of stable 60ish degree temperatures, that might prove very difficult. Started these in a high tunnel as transplants first week of March, thinking surely they'd be heading by mid May. Nope. Seedlings and plants were not especially vigorous. They will bolt if you look at them the wrong way, and what heads did form were pretty small. Moral of the story, these are a difficult heirloom to grow in anything but ideal climates. In their defense, these seem to fare very well against pests. They were growing alongside rows of cabbage that got eviscerated by loopers, but they didn't seem to take any real damage at all. Really beautiful plants to behold as well, and what heads I was able to harvest looked great, stored well, and were gone in a flash at the market. I hope to plant them in late July/August as a fall crop this year- think that might work much better in this region (6b).

What are the pros? Taste is incredible

Review:

This was planted in my flowerbed with very little watering(I should note here that we had a lot of rain though) but was mulched below pretty good and the broccoli was sweet to me. I had family try it and they were also impressed at how sweet it was in the stalks and not just the heads. I will definitely be buying this one every year.

What are the pros? Grows well in the winter

What are the cons? None

Review:

We plant this in September or October, as winter is the only time we can grow broccoli due to the heat. Produces all winter, as we even had ice once and it kept on going. Not usually bothered by bugs. Good flavor, much better than the grocery store.

Review:

I am in Zone 10a, Southern California, and planted these in seed starter pots in January, but left them in too long, so when I transplanted them to the ground 60 days later, they took a while to get growing. My bad to leave them in pots more than 30 days. I'm a newbie to all this. plants started taking off, getting about 2ft. tall with no sign of heads by early May. I almost pulled them out because I thought they'd bolted, when the heads started forming around mid-May and growing like mad. Not as big as icky store-bought monster broccoli, but we just harvested and ate some last night (June 1). The color and flavor of this home-grown broccoli is better than even the fancy-pants $50 a plate restaurants serve. Leaves them in the dust. Lesson learned: Plant earlier into the garden soil here in So. Cal, and be patient! This has been worth all the wait.

What are the cons? So good my dog tries to steal

Review:

Had a weird spring, but this broccoli persevered. Harvested for the past 2 weeks. Even the stems are delicious and tender. Best tasting broccoli I've had.
