Di Cicco Broccoli (55-70 Days) (HEIRLOOM)

Italian Heirloom – 1890
Numerous side shoots of varying size may be harvested over a long period after the 3-5” central head is picked. Don’t restrict yourself from eating just the blue – green florets, the stalks and leaves are tender, tasty, and edible, as well. 

30 seeds

Germ 3-10 days

PLANTING:

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.

Prolific

Broccoli is a heavy feeder. DiCicco produced very well for us. Side shoots were larger than average. We grow several varieties of broccoli and will continue to keep CiCicco in the mix. Excellent flavor, too.

disappointing

We has grown PacMan broccoli before and this sounded similar. We were disappointed. It never really developed any "head" and the side shoots after were so small it was almost not worthwhile to harvest them.
