Di Cicco organic broccoli seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! This is an old European heirloom that has been in cultivation since 1890. The blue-green plants are stout and compact at 60-90cm (24-36") with 8-10cm (3-4") heads that don’t come uniformly as on hybrid broccoli, but are super productive, and are followed by a multitude of side shoots over a long period. It's unusual to have less uniformity but higher productivity than hybrid broccoli options. Di Cicco organic broccoli seeds are excellent fresh quality, and a very good choice for freezing. We recommend di Cicco organic broccoli seeds for growing in raised beds or allotment gardens. It would be too big for most containers, but it makes excellent microgreens.
