A great variety for the home garden or direct markets that favor bunched side shoots. A standard for open-pollinated broccoli with a good size main dome and lots of side shoots. Sturdy 20” plants support 5-6” dark blue-green heads with medium to large beads and long stalks (hard to find with modern hybrids.) Developed to withstand increasing cold of fall maturity. Spring plantings do well but heads are smaller in size and sensitive to intense summer heat.
Your plants will greatly benefit from the action of certain Bacterias in the soil. Beneficial Aerobic Bacteria enhance plant growth & root formation, decompose organic material in the soil into plant nutrients and build soil structure and humus levels.
Bacteria fix nitrogen by converting nitrogen from the air into plant available form. It increases nutrient levels in the soil by converting insoluble nutrients (including phosphorus) for plant use and improves nutrient absorption by increasing cell membrane permeability of root hairs.
Trichoderma produce natural plant hormones which promote plant and root growth. Inoculated seeds resist pre-germination rot and improve the germination rate and period of seeds. You’ll see improved disease resistance and a suppression of pathogenic fungi that cause seed rot, root rot, stem rot and fruit rot.
