Brocoli Italian Sprouting - Di Cicco - Seeds & Bulbs
If you have eaten Broccoli in Italy you know what we say when say you should try Di Cicco. Tasty and very productive; Di Cicco does not have uniform production which means the plant produces copius amounts of small to medium sized headswell into the summer. A long harvest period means more tasty Broccoli more often! We recommend you harvest the main head when it is 3" in diameter - this will encourage more side shoots. An excellent Broccoli seed for sprouting. Also a good freezer variety.
