Grow for Taste

Rapini senza testa means "without head". So if you are looking for rapini (broccoli rabe) that has the pretty heads and impresses your dinner guests, this isn't the one for you. But if you are into it for the taste, senza testa is the way to go. I've grown both side by side and prefer senza testa.

excellent for hawaii

back for another packet! these greens are so good for omelets, pasta dishes, bean dishes, pizza--even wonderful in enchiladas. remove the stems for cooking. we grow them in big pots, and they keep producing for cut and come again cooking greens. the stems are quite sturdy, so they hold up well in our windy garden. some insect damage, but not much--backs of the leaves have an irritating hairy covering, and the taste is bitter, so most bugs will go elsewhere.
