Di Ciccio

75 to 90 days — 'Di Ciccio' broccoli plants are compact, reaching two to three feet in height, and produce a central three to four inch head with numerous side shoots. It can be more productive than many hybrids and its non-uniformity in maturity makes it an excellent home garden variety. Freezes well.

Introduced in 1890, 'Di Ciccio' is an old, reliable Italian heirloom broccoli variety. We have also seen it spelled and referred to as "de Cicco," "di Ciccio," and even "Decicco." Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 125 to 175 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Start indoors, six weeks prior to your last expected frost date. Transplant when three inches tall. Plant the seedlings about one inch deeper than they were in your pots. Work ½ cup of organic fertilizer into the soil with each transplant.

You can also plant directly in the soil, at a depth of about ¼ to ½ inch, in mid-Spring. Thin to a final plant spacing of 15 to 18 inches in rows two to three feet apart.

Avoid providing too much nitrogen. Broccoli likes cool weather and will head too early in warm temperatures. Harvest the heads before the individual flowers mature and begin to open.
