Broccoli (Sprouting) Seeds - F1 Claret

British bred, Claret has a vigorous habit so you need less plants to produce the same yield as normal types. Performs well even on poorer soils. For spring.

Tom says: The slightly untidy cousin of calabrese, broccoli provides you with the first harvests of the year in January-April. The sweet, earthy flavour complements all kinds of dishes from Asian inspired stir-fries to Sunday roasts.
