Delivery: Despatched from Early May
A breeding breakthrough, specially bred for summer cropping - from late June to October. Summer Purple produces high quality, well-coloured spears with good heat tolerance.
A very high yielding and versatile variety. Sprouting Broccoli is so good for you, it is brimmimg with vitamins and is regarded by nutritionists as a superfood, high in cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
16 plants gives you the potential of 40 florets in one season. That’s excellent value compared to high-end broccoli Summer Purple you can get in the supermarket at a price.
We recommend you catch-crop with an intermittent row of lettuce which grows faster so you have something to enjoy while you wait for the prize of purple broccoli.
