We suggest Eastern Magic or Green Magic Broccoli as replacements
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.
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.
