FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

An heirloom variety bred for overwintering. Early Purple Sprouting produces lots broccoli sprouts in the spring. Grows slowly through the winter; very frost hardy. (58-90 days)

Each packet contains approximately 300 seeds.

Planting Instructions:
Start seeds 4-6 weeks prior to desired transplanting date. Seedlings need bright artificial light or full sun; a cold frame is ideal. Set plants out 4 weeks prior to last frost date in the spring or 4-6 weeks before first frost when fall-planting. Plants need rich soil and abundant moisture to produce well. After the main head is harvested, plants often produce smaller florets over a long season. Always harvest broccoli just before flowers open. Spring plantings often bolt to seed in hot summer weather.
