Calabrese Sticcoli is the replacement for Tendergreen . The idea was to breed a more flavoursome Brassica by producing a hybid of Calabrese and Chinese Kale.
This variety produces delicious green broccoli spears on edible stems, which taste similar to asparagus and are high in Vitamins A & C, plus many other minerals.
During growing it is important to pinch out the first head at an early stage as this encourages the side spears to develop, which are what we are after with this variety. Transplant March - June, crops from June - October.
