This seed comes to us from the Cima di Rapa strain of Italy; where it is known as broccoli asparago (or asparagus broccoli) due to its asparagus-like spring shoots. This is a quick maturing plant that will grow to 24-30" and prefers cooler weather - perfect for a very early spring crop. The stems, buds and flowers are all delicious, with a unique flavor that is slightly spicy or peppery. Enjoy them sauteed with garlic and olive oil, steamed, boiled, stir-fried or raw.For maximum flavor, harvest shoots just before the flowers open or cut 6"pieces when the "broccolis" are quarter-sized.
