Arcadia Broccoli (F1 Hybrid, 70 Days)

2 reviews

Great broccoli to grow in a compact space. Tightly domed 6-8” heads have small to medium sized beads then continues on with a bumper crop of side shoots. Good freezing variety and wide seasonal adaptability.

30 seeds

PLANTING

Brassica oleracea

Germination: 3-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to the strongest seedling. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before last frost. Space 12-18" apart. Sow in early to midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-18” apart. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

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: Provide fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the very beginning of its growth in the garden. Give adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

    I recommend this product
    Broccoli- I have grown Arcadia broccoli for several years- North Dakota, zone 4, good soils. I have been very happy with the results, excellent yield and flavor.

    I've always liked the fact that I can buy an appropriate number of seeds for a home gardener- for instance, 15 or 20 tomato (or broccoli) seeds are more than enough even if I spill a few or have some dampen off. This keeps me coming back year after year!

    Best Broccoli Ever!!!

    I live in central FL so my growing season is Oct. to May. I picked the first head on Christmas day and was still picking in April. The first heads were huge 8 to 10 inches across. The plants then produced multiple 5 to 7 inch heads, then buckets full of 1 to 3 inch side shoots. Great flavor and freezes great too.
