Growing Calendar for Calabrese Seeds - Green Magic
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
This early maturing variety has a tightly packed green head and once that is harvested the plant will produce many tasty side shoots. It's also white rust resistant. Ideal for freezing.
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. Unlike broccoli, calabrese does not cope well with having its roots disturbed.
Like all young brassicas, it is advisable to use netting or bird scarers when planting out.
Harvest the head and the plant will produce some tasty side shoots.
