Introduced to the U.S. in the second half of the 19th century.

An English heirloom variety, bred for over wintering.
This is a fall planted heirloom broccoli that is not ready for harvest till spring. Will not produce shoots until it over winters, but then look out because you will get a great supply of purple shoots.

Grows slowly through the winter; very frost hardy. Will survive nighttime temps of 15 degrees but will need protection if colder or if it lasts all day.

Early Purple Sprouting Broccoli is not only a colorful addition to salads, but it is very flavorful.

Once the central head is harvested, the plants continue to produce plentiful side shoots.

Plant in August for very early spring harvest.

Pkt: 100 seeds
