Pack Contents: 100x Calabrese Seeds

Height: 60cm/2ft

Description

  • Attractive, dark green, domed heads.
  • Harvest throughout summer and autumn.
  • Good disease resistance.

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.

The dark green, rather domed heads of Calabrese 'Zen' 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!

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.
