(60-90 days. Heirloom) Delicious early and late season heirloom favorite. Introduced to the seed trade around 1910, this variety was brought to our shores—and our gardens—by Italian immigrants. A deliciously old-fashioned broccoli, it boasts dark bluish-green central heads about 5″ across. Tall, erect, 30-36″ plants keep producing multiple side shoots once the central head is cut. Harvest 60-90 days after transplant.
