A strong root system makes this variety very vigorous, nitrogen-efficient and resistant to stress (produces few hollow stems). Florets have short stems and fine, uniform, deep blue-green beads. Holds well. Good resistance to mildew. Crops September-October.
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.
