GYPSY BROCCOLI (F1 hybrid 57 days)

Germ 3-10 days
Heat tolerance is the virtue usually mentioned that sets Gypsy apart from other broccoli varieties. Good choice for growing in the South and also for later plantings in the North that will be maturing in the heat of August. Plants are very vigorous with a strong stalk and energetic root system. Color is a paler green – you don’t get the bluish tinge present in some varieties. Resists downy mildew and tastes good, with a strong broccoli flavor. 30 seeds


Indoors - 4-6 weeks before last frost and 1/4” deep with soil temperature at 65-75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out just before last frost.

Outdoors – Early spring until mid summer for fall crops. Plant 1/2” deep and 6” apart. Thin seedlings to 18” apart.

Harvest- Pick when heads are tight before flower buds starts to open. For varieties that produce side shoots keep picked for a longer production

Tips - A heavy feeder transplant/direct seed into well composted soil and side dress when buds begin to form.

Best Broccoli Hands Down

For years we have been trying to find a broccoli that will grow in the high desert of Oregon. Finally a few years ago we tried Gypsy! Absolutely the best we have ever grown! Nice large heads with great flavor maturing in our hot August days!! This is the only broccoli you will find in our 2/3 acre garden!! Thank you Pinetree!
