Broccoli

Featuring heirloom, open-pollinated, non-GMO, untreated seeds.

Broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) is an edible green plant in the cabbage family (family Brassicaceae, genus Brassica) whose large flowering head, stalk and small associated leaves are eaten as a vegetable. Broccoli is classified in the Italica cultivar group of the species Brassica oleracea. Broccoli has large flower heads, usually dark green, arranged in a tree-like structure branching out from a thick stalk which is usually light green. The mass of flower heads is surrounded by leaves. Broccoli resembles cauliflower, which is a different but closely related cultivar group of the same Brassica species.

It is eaten either raw or cooked. Broccoli is a particularly rich source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Contents of its characteristic sulfur-containing glucosinolate compounds, isothiocyanates and sulforaphane, are diminished by boiling but are better preserved by steaming, microwaving or stir-frying.

Broccoli Waltham 29, Organic


In Stock
$3.89

Broccoli Waltham 29 is prized for its large 4-6" dark blue-green heads and marvelous flavor. It has a reputation as a superfood because it contains a wealth of nutrients and antioxidants that support many aspects of human health. 

Broccoli seeds can be started indoors.

Start seeds inside 8 weeks before the last frost date. Place seeds 1/2" deep in pots with growing mix and place in bright light. After 5 weeks transplant the seedlings 2' apart into enriched garden soil with full sun. Broccoli is a cool-season vegetable that likes daytime temperatures in the 60s and can tolerate light frost and temperatures down to the 20s. 

Seeds take 3-4 months from the time of planting to a broccoli harvest while transplants only take 2-3 months. Unless you start seeds indoors over the winter, it may be difficult to grow a spring broccoli crop from seed, because the weather will warm too quickly. Fall crops are much easier to start from seed directly in the garden. For fall planting, build rows 2' apart and plant broccoli seeds 1" deep and 6" apart. When seedlings are 6" tall thin them to 2' apart.

Broccoli grows quickly and it needs a lot of nutrients. Rich compost will help feed your plants, and they can also benefit from applications of compost tea or from monthly applications of a balanced organic fertilizer. Like other veggies, broccoli needs to be kept evenly moist and water deeply to encourage deep roots. Mulching can help to provide uniform moisture, conserve water, and reduce weeds.  

Each packet contains 50 Organic Broccoli Waltham seeds. Brassica oleracea. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. Harvest in 85 days.
