This is a group of broccoli that are harvested like Broccolini (Broccolini is not included in the mix because it requires special handling for success)   The leaves, tender stems and bud clusters can be steamed and are favored for a quick stir-fry much sweeter that Raab.  It’s difficult to explain this mix which includes Italian Foglia broccoli, Asian Gai-Lan and some interesting kinds like Purple Peacock.  So there are some broccoli relatives in here.  This is not the mix for your ordinary heading broccoli but you will find that broccoli can be so much more than you might expect.

Broccoli - Leafy Greens

A packet plants 15 ft. row (100 seeds)

Seed should be handled in the same manner as heading broccoli.  The seedlings can be easily planted ultimately to 8-12 inches apart.  This is a very diverse blend and will mature at different times, some kinds produce big plants.

Seeds can be planted in spring for summer crops and summer for late fall crops. On Long Island, a spring sown crop continues into fall since this is a kind of cut and come again broccoli.  Tender shootswith leaves and clusters of buds are harvested causing more shoots to be produced.  We like the wilder flavor better than heading broccoli.

Allow the shoots to produce flowers and pods.  The ripened pods are handled just like heading broccoli for a seed crop.  This is a B. oleraceae which will cross with other members of the same species of Brassica.
