Awesome Broccoli
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0

What are the pros? Early and easy to grow!

What are the cons? none I am happy!!


Waltham 29 was a great choice this year! I live in zone 6, right at the border between 6A and 6B. I started this broccoli inside mid-March, and set it out a month later in mid-April under summerweight fabric (not frost protection, insect protection). A semi-harsh frost at the end of April did a little damage but every plant came back with vengence! Now it is early June and I have been picking huge (up to 10 inches across) heads of delicious broccoli! Ive kept the plants under the fabric all this time to keep pests (esp. caterpillars) off and it has worked, no bug damage! From seed it has taken nearly 3 months till harvest, but from transplant not even 2! I think that is quick for broccoli especially an old timer like this one! I definitely recommend this one and I always recommend insect protection like fabric over any kind of chemical or organic pesticide. Happy Growing!!
