Description: Introduced in the early 1950s, very dependable cool weather broccoli with dark green, nearly blue color, medium sized heads with no side shoots and full of flavor.
Planting Instructions: 80 days. Start plants indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4" deep in a starting mix. Keep evenly moist until germination. Provide plenty of light after the seedlings emerge. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost, spacing the plants 12-15" apart in rows 18-36" apart in rich, well-prepared soil. Prefers long, cool summers. Heavy feeders, so fertilize well, and keep well-irrigated, especially during dry spells. Does not tolerate heat well. Plant early-summer for a fall harvest.
