A tasty and nutritious steamed vegetable with domed green heads. They are usually ready for harvest 80 days after transplanting so are ideal for eating in late summer and autumn.

  • Growing Instructions:

    Sow thinly in mid April to late June in a well prepared seedbed 13mm deep. Transplant when they are large enough to handle (about 5 weeks from sowing) to well prepared soil in a sunny spot. Early sowings can be made under glass but they resent being moved when temperatures are too high so later sowings should be made in a well prepared bed in a sunny spot allowing 40-45cm between plants. Keep evenly moist throughout the growing season and after the 300-400g central heads have been harvested give the plants a feed and this will encourage subsequent side shoots to develop. These can be cut regularly until the first frosts.
