This richly flavored open-pollinated Broccoli variety is popular with home vegetable gardeners. Green Sprouting Calabrese Broccoli seeds grow quickly and produce 4” heads with abundant side shoots, which can be harvested after the main head has been cut. Maturity time is not uniform, resulting in an extending harvest for home gardeners.
Broccoli provides an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, chromium, and folic acid. It is a good source of dietary fiber, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin E, manganese, phosphorus, choline, vitamin B1, Beta-carotene, potassium, and copper. Broccoli in the diet also supplies vitamin B1, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, zinc, calcium, iron, niacin, and selenium.
Heirloom Calabrese Green Sprouting broccoli seeds grow best in cool weather, so starting seeds indoors 5-6 weeks before the last expected frost will ensure faster crops. Shortly before the last frost and when the seedlings reach about 6” tall, plant them 1-2” apart in rows 2-3’ apart. For direct sowing, plant seeds 1” deep and 3” apart in full sun and rich soil, about 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Germination can occur in temps as low as 40°. For fall crops, direct sow in July or August.
