Arcadia Broccoli (F1 Hybrid 70 Days)

4 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. Disease Resistance- black rot, downy mildew, head rot, and heat stress. 

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 the 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 the suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before the last frost. Space 12-18" apart. Sow in early to midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when the 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 start 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.

Most prolific broccoli ever

Arcadia has kept us in broccoli, LOTS of broccoli, all summer long. The plants grow grow tall and bushy with many growing points per plant. After the initial big head the side sprouts grow smaller heads all summer and into the fall and early winter. (I'm at 1400' in western WA so I grow my Arcadia in a hoop house.)

Great Broccoli!

My broccoli looks great at the moment. Heads are forming and just about ready!! Pinetree is a great place to buy seeds, especially small packets! I had great germination also.

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.
