This is an English heirloom variety that was bred for overwintering. A delicacy, but so easy to grow. Plant produces very flavorful heads of purple broccoli. Once the main head is removed this variety will continuously produce many offshoots during the season. Broccoli turns green when cooked. Excellent color choice for garnishes or using fresh in salads. Very frost hardy. Perfect for producing a fine crop when there is very little else in the garden. This is a great variety that is very hard to find in the US. 60 days.
