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.

Germination Temperature: 45 - 85° F and above.
Germination: 4 - 7 Days
Days to Maturity: 45 Days.
Difficulty: Easy

Each package contains approximately 100 seeds.
