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 avoid damage from pigeons.
For the very best results from your brassicas use Pre-Planting Brassica Fertiliser to give your crops a boost.
