Description

Not a purple, but a green-sprouting broccoli, which is quick to crop by autumn (not in late winter like most sprouting varieties). Keep picking and it keeps producing.

Care Tips

Choose a sheltered position with fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the soil in early spring by adding plenty of well rotted farmyard manure. Protect from cabbage white butterflies and water well after planting.
