Organic Rapini Spring Raab Broccoli Planting Instructions:
Direct sow in early spring as soon as soil is workable. Broccoli Raab seeds are tiny, so simply sprinkle them in rows 8-12” apart and cover with ¼” of soil in full sun. Thin plants when seedlings are 1-2” tall; spread 4-6” apart. Keep soil evenly moist and plants will reward you with quick growth. Weed garden regularly, as they can impede growth.
Organic Rapini Spring Raab Broccoli Harvesting Instructions:
Broccoli Raab will take 45 to 60 days for the plants to mature and will produce regularly if watered properly. Harvest greens before flower stalks form when leaves are small. Harvest florettes when shoots are 1-2’ tall, before flowers open. Cut stem 5” below the bud. Do not trim down to the ground, as it may not regrow. You can harvest until new shoots are too tough to eat.
Did You Know This About Rapini Spring Raab Broccoli?
Broccoli Raab is not broccoli? No, raab is more closely related to the turnip plant. This explains why the leaves resemble turnip greens instead of the bushy broccoli you might expect.
