I planted 9 Star, Lievens, Nutribud, Di Ciccio and this last year. This was by far the best. Nice tight heads and very productive. By far this was the best tasting of the group. I cut the center head and then let them make smaller brocolettos. I then let them flower for the bees and other small mouthed insects. At the end of the season, we chop these and till them right into the beds to prevent nematodes. Next year I'll skip all the other varieties and plant this with Violetto Cauliflower. These two will make beautiful music together.
