DI RAPA NOVANTINA BROCCOLI (30 days)

2

Germ 3-10 days
Called Broccoli Raab or Rapini in this country, this is actually a non-heading broccoli. The top 6-8” or so of leaves and unopened flowers are usually harvested. Makes a good fall crop or grow in early spring. No resemblance to the mild broccoli flavor you may be used to, this green is quite pungent. Never served raw but is steamed for about 5 minutes and used in a recipe or eaten alone. 100 seeds

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.

The seedlings were very healthy

The seedlings were very healthy and strong and they are now young, vigorous plants. We put them in the ground just 4 days ago and they showed no signs of distress what so ever. I'll know more after we've tasted them :)

Seeds

I have ordered my seeds for the next growing season in December, they arrived promptly, but how can I know how good these seeds are when I will only use them in 3-4 months and harvest in 6-9 months ?
