Green Sprouting Broccoli Seed (60-90 days) Latin Name - Brassica Oleracea
This is the mainstay of our garden. Our strain of calabrese is VERY frost tolerant. Start it early in the season and by early summer you will have tons of sweet broccoli. Harvest the central head then lay the plant over on its side for an explosion of side shoots that will just keep coming till the heat of summer. If you are in a relatively cool area as we are, plants may continue to produce for 6 months or longer. We don't plant a fall crop we just keep this one crop trimmed and enjoy the rewards. You just can't beat Calabrese.
Planting Instructions Rows: start seed indoors about 4 weeks before transplanting outdoors, or direct seed outdoors using season extenders such as wall-o-waters for protection.
When transplanting or thinning, leave 12" to 24" between plants. Plant in rows 24" to 30" apart.
Beds: when planting in beds, allow 18" to 24" between each plant, or seed thinly using row cover for protection. Thin to 18" to 24" apart. Containers: when planting in containers, allow 18" to 24" between each plant.
