Broccoli Seeds - Calabrese - Certified Organic

(Brassica oleracea)

Calabrese is an old-fashioned variety of broccoli renowned for its bluish green heads and multiple side shoots. It can be grown as an early spring or fall crop. Its flavourful five inch (13 cm.) central heads are ready for harvest in 60 to 90 days. This cool season member of the Brassicaceae family is thought to contain natural cancer fighting substances. 

Sow two seeds 5-8mm deep. Holes should be spaced 30cm apart in rows that are 60cm apart. Keep the area moist with a spray bottle until germination occurs. Once you see sprouts, thin each planting area so that it only has one seedling.
