This beautiful vegetable is an Italian heirloom that produces stunning spiraled heads of lime-green florets with pointed tips.
Romanesco broccoli is a cool-weather crop that prefers well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is a slow-maturing variety that can take up to 100 days to harvest, but the result is worth the wait.
This variety of broccoli is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, making it a healthy addition to any diet. Its tender and nutty-flavoured florets are perfect for roasting, grilling, or steaming.

Didn't realise I was buying seeds, that's ok though... I'm not really a green thumb but there's plenty of seeds for me to have a go, and if I fail, I have friends who are green thumbs, so they can grow them for me... 😁
Very fast delivery and the personal touch made me smile.
