Green Sprouting Calabrese Planting Instructions:

Before you plant, prepare the garden bed by tilling the soil. Loosen the soil to a depth of 12-15” and add a 2-4” layer of compost. Direct sow the seeds ¼” deep and 18” apart. In colder zones, start the seeds indoors 5 to 7 weeks before the last frost, and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. These plants prefer pH levels of 6.0-7.5. They can tolerate a slightly alkaline soil and require plentiful, consistent moisture and full sun.

Green Sprouting Calabrese Harvesting Instructions:

For peak quality, harvest your plants when the buds of the head are firm and tight. If the buds start to separate and the yellow petals start to show through, harvest immediately.

Did You Know This About Green Sprouting Calabrese?
Thomas Jefferson imported seeds from Italy to plant this broccoli variety at Monticello. The vegetable was a favorite of his. The earliest recorded planting by Jefferson was 1767, but it would take another 150 years before broccoli would be grown commercially.

Great germination rate September 8, 2016
Reviewer: Jocelyn James from Ocala, FL United States  
Seeds are always fresh and have a high germination rate. Even the second year. You cant beat the price and they come in easy resealable foil packets. This is my second time ordering seed from MPS and both times I have been impressed with them.
