Availability: In stock

$1.25

SKU: W250

This fine old Italian brassica is another one that kind of blurs the line between broccoli and cauliflower. Heads are quite large by broccoli standards, smallish for a cauliflower. The color is lovely light purple for an interesting contrast in crudite, when cooked, as with beans, the color turns green. Flavor is tasty and side shoots develop after the central head is harvested. 30 seeds.

After germination, grow in cool conditions 57-68 degrees for best results. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out when there is little chance of frost. Outdoors- Early spring until mid summer for fall crops. Plant 1/2 “deep and 18” apart. Harvest- Tie up leaves around heads to blanch. Watch closely and pick before the curds begin to loosen. Tips- A heavy feeder transplant/direct seed into rich, well composted soil and side dress when buds begin to form.
