Calabrese Plants - Komodo

  • Catalogue Code 1080-6014
  • Pack Contents: 16x Calabrese Plants

The first clubroot-resistant broccoli-like Calabrese, named by our own Head of Horticulture James Oakey on account of its robustness and full-flavour.

Resistant to clubroot means less strife to you and frees you of troubleshooting pesky diseases. This variety produces dense deep-green heads of calabrese which are formed on a compact plant.

Enjoy healthy harvests of Calabrese Komodo when they will be ready from July. Enjoy picking the edible heads of calabrese into autumn. So dependable!

We recommend you position plants outdoors in rich soil. Position plants every 12in (30cm) in a row which will give the plants enough space to develop well and produce you lovely edible heads.

Keep well-watered as soon as you receive your plants until you harvest them from mid-summer to autumn to your calabrese plants in good stead. Once you’ve harvested your calabrese heads bring them into the kitchen and steam them so they retain their lovely flavour.   

How your plants arrive

You receive 16 young plants in your pack. Each of your plants arrive to you as young plants containing a ‘plug’ of soil with roots running through them and some small green stems and leaves.

Although they are little they are the perfect size to get growing fast once you plant them up.

Your plants will arrive to you in a sealed plastic wallet or container contained in a bubble-lined envelope or a box for larger orders. The sealed container allows your young plants to stay healthy by giving them an ideal air and root environment when it arrives to you.

Check your 16 plants are there in the plastic container, according to your order.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you cannot plant up your calabrese plants straight away into their permanent position make sure the plugs of your plants are kept moist at all times.

You can place your plants on a saucer or tray of water so the plugs are immersed at the beginning of the day. Keep an eye on them and take them out of the water once the soil is moist from absorbing the water beneath.

Keep your plants in a well-ventilated and light position in their plastic container after giving them water. Look to planting in their permanent position within 5-7 days.
