Description

Marathon produces medium size, uniform, dense heads of bluish-green 'beads' on sturdy plants that will grow well in almost any soil and under any conditions.

Plants despatched mid May for cutting late July onwards.

Calabrese has a flavour that some find a little milder than sprouting broccoli. Add to that a shorter growing season and it makes an ideal vegetable for those who like quicker results.

Just like sprouting broccoli, this ‘superfood' is packed full of cancer-fighting properties, vitamins, iron and other health-giving benefits.

Like all young brassicas, it is advisable to use netting or bird scarers when planting out to keep pigeons away.
