Description

The dark green, rather domed heads of Calabrese Zen F1 Hybrid resist stem rots as water does not sit on them. Also has downy mildew resistance. Harvest in autumn 90-100 days after planting out. A tip-top variety!

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. Unlike broccoli, calabrese does not cope well with having its roots disturbed.

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