Broccoli - Purple Sprouting
The Fruitful Potager
Brassica oleracea Open pollinated. Hardy.
One of the easiest and most prolific broccoli you can grow. Quite a large plant which produces numerous purple florets. It is a sprouting broccoli so will form numerous shoots rather than one main head. Keep it well picked and it will reward you with a continuous supply of broccoli for at least a month. Unfortunately like most purple vege it turns green when cooked. Use raw for beautiful looking (and tasting) salads. Allow 40-50cm. Punnet of 6 seedlings.
