Organic Piracicaba Broccoli

$3.79$12.00

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.
