Growing Calendar for Brokali Seeds - Columbia
Delivery: 5-7 working days
Every packet of seeds gives you 50 plants. That’s a great way to make savings from your food shopping.
Brokali ‘Columbia’ is an exciting exclusive variety for autumn and winter harvest. It has good tolerance to cold temperatures and will produce an impressive yield of long stemmed florets after most other main crop varieties of broccoli.
The flavour and texture is sweeter and more succulent than standard Broccoli and is ideal for stir fries and tempura.
To get the most out of ‘Columbia’ we recommend you harvest by cutting the main head when it’s the size of an egg, then the side stems will produce more florets on the plant lower down. Once these are harvested, yet more will appear and the process can continue for about two months.
By cropping in this way you can enjoy melt-in-the mouth and delicious stems over a long period. For the very best results from your brassicas use Pre-Planting Brassica Fertiliser to give the roots of your crops a boost of nutrients in the winter months.
These are my favourites. The tenderstems are delicious in stir fries. They freeze very well too.
The best ever for tender stem, it’s prolific and freezes very well as well as being delicious.
These seeds are fantastic and realisable. They produce a large crop of delicious tender stems that last for months. I buy several packets a year because tender stem is so expensive in the supermarkets and they’re never grown in the UK.

A refreshing lunchtime treat when the sun is beating down and you desire thirst quenching foods. The mild chilli contrasts with the slices of smoked duck which you can find at a good deli.
