I planted this in my garden early last spring, and it continued to produce broccoli until just a month ago when we got a super hard freeze!! I am beyond impressed.
Initially was disappointed in a smaller than expected center head, however, these plants produced side shoots all season long. No need for succession plantings!
Not only is this place the fastest shipping around. I'm amazed at how quickly this broccoli germinated! Very impressed!
