Dark green leaves, purple stems and sweet, petite florets.

Similar to broccoli raab with a sweeter flavor and delicate texture. Young flowering shoots are delicious in fresh salads, stir-fries and pasta dishes. Best for fall harvest; shorter days cause stems to elongate. Harvest just before bright yellow blossoms open.

Cultural Info

Moderately hardy annuals that combine qualities of mustard greens and broccoli for salads and light cooking. Grown for their tender flowering shoots, this large family of vegetables has no central head but many tender leaves and side shoots with penny size clusters of buds. Many plants in this family are quite beautiful in the garden, some favoring cooler seasons and some preferring heat. Use floating row cover when planting to protect from flea beetles. Will tolerate light frosts. Harvest multiple times as flower stalks peak above foliage or for a one time harvest.
