Organic Piracicaba Broccoli HEIRLOOM Extraordinary flavor is why we love Piricicaba. (Okay, we love to say the name, too.)

Growing large heads of broccoli is consistently a challenge in our climate and over time we've realized that outstanding broccoli flavor is what we're after more than the huge head of broccoli itself.

Enter, Piracicaba.

It's head production is minimal but its abundant, succulent side-shoots are sweet and tender enough for enjoying raw. Perfect for the home garden, the entire plant is absolutely delicious from stem to leaf to floret and it continues to produce delicious side-shoots all season long. In fact, we are still enjoying them just before New Years 2016 as I write.

If you want a head of broccoli, grow Calabrese. If you want to eat the most delicious broccoli-like vegetable we know of, grow Piricicaba.


55 days to floret

Brassica oleracea

i planted a couple successions and harvested until December (after -10f uncovered for a couple nights in November). i prefer DeCicco for the size of the heads and size of the individual buds, but loved this too

5 of 5 Only broccoli I grow! January 5, 2019
Reviewer: Kae from Green Mountain, NC United States  
I love this variety.  It is a three season veggie for me here in the WNC mountains. Mild flavor even as the weather gets warm. And birds love to nest in it.
