Green Sprouting Calabrese

80 days — 'Green Sprouting Calabrese' is an old standard variety that has been a mainstay in many people's gardens year in and year out. This is partly because it does not mature uniformly and partly because it produces many side shoots. Perfect for home garden, fresh use.

The plants grow tall (thirty to thirty-six inches), erect and leafy. They produce central heads that are bluish-green in color and average from three to five inches across. If planted early in the spring, the main head can be harvested in the summer, the plants laid down, and side shoots harvested for continuing weeks. Frost resistant. 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.
