Vegetable: Broccoli, Tendergreen - Brassica Oleracea
Vermont grower Altoon Sultan calls this a “wonderful early broccoli.” Up to a week earlier than Packman’s flat-top with a better looking 6–7" semi-domed head, though not stalwart in extreme heat. Heads matured Sept. 5 from a July 11 transplanting. Heads are lighter weight than the late-season varieties. The medium-large beads do a good job of shedding water. Pleasing blue-green color, tender and delicious flavor. Modest 2–3" (occasionally 4") side shoots to follow.
Days to Maturity: 67
