Cavolo Broccolo Spigariello Foglia Riccia (25-93)

$4.55

We have received word that there has been a crop failure in Italy of this variety. The Fuscello seed company hopes to have more available in July of 2020. We will restock as much as possible then.

 

Leaf Broccoli. 75 days. Widely grown in Southern Italy, especially Puglia. Grow as any broccoli. Set out 6 week old transplants any time during growing season, or direct seed. Space or thin to 18'' apart. Eat the leaves and little broccoli tops. Very tasty. The more you cut, the more it grows. Make soups, or braise and use with pasta.

Decided to try this after growing the Foglia Liscia variety which was terrific and very productive even lasting into winter [coastal Northern California]. What a disappointing mistake. Not so frilly as deeply indented leaves like dandelion. They plants thrived but there was very little of the leaf greens but a lot of stem. I'm back to the Smooth Leaf kind - the leaves are actually more ruffeled with some even having frilly edges depending on stage of growth and location on the plant.
