55 days to first harvest Brassica oleracea

HEIRLOOM Extraordinary flavor is why we love Organic Piracicaba Broccoli. (Okay, we love to say the name pee-ree-see-kah-bah, 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: Her head production is minimal but her 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 to harvest heads of broccoli, grow Calabrese. If you want to eat the most delicious broccoli-like vegetable we know of, grow Piracicaba.

1 review for Organic Piracicaba Broccoli

  1. daviduhr

    This broccoli from Brazil has been incredibly beautiful and productive. Eschewing a large central head, the large plants with even larger leaves brought forth an abundance of sprouts that we have been picking for 6 weeks now and it appears we may continue for awhile yet. The best part of this broccoli is the wonderful sweet flavor and tenderness of the sprout stems, extending for 6 inches or so below the sprout. It has held up well in the heat of mid-summer as well so far, which makes sense considering it was developed in the tropics. Give these plants plenty of room when you set them as they do get big.
