This preeminent Italian heirloom variety was first documented in Italy in the 16th century. Widely grown and prized in Italy. Grows exceptionally well in cool northern areas or as a winter vegetable.
'Romanesco's crisp, beautiful apple-green spiraled florets impart an amazing flavor and nutty taste. Most often enjoyed raw, the broccoli, if lightly steamed or baked, will retain its delicious flavor and unique texture.
