Raab (pronounced Rob), also known as Rapini, and Broccolo Asparago in Italy, is a non-heading version of broccoli with a more pungent flavor. The variety name Quarantina means ‘40 days.’ Harvest young stems, leaves and small flower buds. Steam, stir-fry or add to salads. People try this as a spring crop with poor results. If the flea beetles don’t get you, the summer heat will. Raab is much better as a fall crop. It will hold a lot longer and cool nights improve the flavor. Young kale leaves make a better spring crop.

Days to Maturity:  40
