Plants grow to 70 cm (27") in height. The central head is quite large, firm and solid, medium beaded and semi-domed with a pleasing dark-blue green colour. There is no doubt about it, this is a top quality broccoli! Large plants work well with close spacing producing heavy yields. Heads are great for fresh garden markets or in the home garden. Excellent tolerance to Black Rot and Downy Mildew. Best of it, it will tolerate a light frost for those late harvests! 

  • Packet $2.49

300 seeds/gram Plants mature quickly and grow best in cooler weather. Both early and late crops are possible. For early crops, start seeds indoors in a soil-less mix from late March to early April. Set out the transplants in late April and early May spacing them about 45 cm (18") apart in rows 90 cm (3') apart. Fertilizing is essential. Use a balanced NPK granular or 20-20-20 water soluble. Keep weeded and evenly watered. Broccoli may become top heavy as the heads form – staking may be required. Harvest the main head when the buds are tight and compact, well before flowering. Cut the centre stalk at an angle below the main head and avoid damaging the side shoots. This encourages more heads to develop and will prolong the harvest. Flowering will signal an end to head production. One packet sows approx. 20 m (66’) of row when thinned to a 40-50 cm (16-18”) spacing.
