Broccoli - Precoce Romanesco

Broccoli - Precoce Romanesco


Brassica oleracea italica

While some are busy arguing over whether this is technically a broccoli or a cauliflower, some are wondering if it is actually from this earth. Well, now it can be from your very own garden, just as Italian gardeners have grown for generations. The pyramid shaped head with intense fractal spirals grows just as a normal brassica would. But this beauty certainly isn't ordinary. Very striking vegetable for your plot. Nice flavour, a bit nutty. Fractal-icious!

Heavy-feeder so have your beds well-prepared, but this plant doesn't like an oversupply of nitrogen. Start seeds in trays and plant mature seedlings at 45cm intervals. Do harvest before the heads start flowering.

Seed type: Heirloom
Seeds per packet: approx 200
Days to germination: 7-10 days
Days to harvest: 90 days
