Calabrese Broccoli (Brassica oleracea) Brought to North America from Italy in the late 1800’s and first made available for market by 1910. Dark green plants grow 18-30 inches tall with a variable bluish green central head between 3-8 inches across. A side shooting growth pattern, this plant can spread out rather quickly so leave at least 24 inches between rows. Very rich flavour from this timeless classic.

200 seeds per packet $3.50
Planting Instructions: Start indoors 4-5 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4 inch deep. Line out transplants after risk of frost has passed at 18 inches apart.
