  • A prolific producer of succulent broccoli spears when sown late Spring/early Summer for harvest from February the following year.
  • Out of stock
    We are delighted to be able to re-offer this lovely calabrese of Italian origin. We had some unsuccessful attempts at seed harvests over the past few years, but with the tender and diligent care of Head Gardener Tristan Leinhard we harvested a bumper crop this year. This variety can be grown through summer or in a cool tunnel from an August sowing for winter/spring harvest. It produces a decent-sized head, is tender and delicious and will continue to grow side shoots for several weeks after harvest of the main head. Certified Organic
Supported in part by the Department of Rural and Community Development and Pobal through the Community Services Programme. We confirm that our organisation complies with The Governance Code for the Community, Voluntary and Charitable Sector in Ireland.
