Item details


A STUNNING delicacy, but so easy to grow! Romanesco has a deliciously nutty flavor and a texture similar to that of cauliflower. Dating back to the 16th century, this rare heirloom is prized by Italian chefs! Though they have a pleasingly delicate flavor, these stunning lime green vegetables are also appreciated for their ornamental quality. The tight spirals are a perfect natural example of a fractal, an intricate repetitive design. Excellent option for container gardening!

Each spiral is arranged in harmony with Fibonacci numbers, a number sequence closely connected to the golden ratio. Creative thinkers in art, music, architecture, and many other disciplines know that the golden ratio is a mathematical relationship thought to be the most aesthetically pleasing to the human eye.

Great for Fall and Spring gardens! Brassica oleracea var. botrytis

~ planting ~

Spring Sowing: This plant grows best in cool weather, so starting the seeds indoors 5-6 weeks before the last expected frost will ensure a faster crop. Shortly after the last frost, prepare the ground with organic matter or fertilizer; when the seedlings reach about 6" tall, plant them 1-2' apart in rows 2-3' apart.

Direct Sowing: Plant 1/2" deep in full sun and rich soil, after the last expected spring frost. Keep the soil moist. For companion planting benefits, plant broccoli with herbs, potatoes, or onions; avoid planting it with tomatoes or pole beans.

Growing: Keep the young plants watered and remove weeds carefully. Mulch helps discourage weeds and regulate soil temperature, and several applications of fertilizer or compost will also be needed.

~ harvesting ~

Harvest the heads as soon as they have matured, but before the florets begin to separate. The heads should be lime green, firm, and heavy. Store them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.

~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
- inquire for discounts available on bulk quantities.
