75 Days from transplant
Grown in Italy since the 16th Century, as Broccolo Romanesco, with tastes described as broccoli and cauliflower, slightly nutty, and having an intense broccoli flavour. It’s shades of chartreuse and apple green, and crazy fractal logarithmic spirals of buds, this brassica is very popular in Italy and with chefs around the world for its flavour and look. Well adapted to Northern climates, and very frost tolerant.
Sow seeds 1/4″ deep, indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors a week before last frost, 2-3′ apart in full sun. as these are heavy feeders, amend soil with compost and water regularly.
