Decicco Italian Sprouting Broccoli has been a well loved American favorite since it was introduced in 1890. Decicco Italian Broccoli is appreciated for its flavorful, tender, 3" to 4" inch floret crowns and production dependability. Expect 2' to 3' foot tall plants in 85 days from seeding. For maximum production, harvest the center crown upon maturity and multiple side spears will appear, extending the growing season harvest. For fresh market growers, pinch the center crown early to promote side shoot growth. This heirloom variety prefers cooler temperatures and is best suited for early spring and fall crops. 50 days from transplanting. Packet: 100 seeds.
