[200 days] A well-loved UK heirloom, Early Purple Sprouting broccoli will provide amazingly tender, wine-coloured shoots in the early spring while everything else is still only thinking of stirring. The stalks are large and sturdy—about 2-3 feet tall—and grow slowly through the winter, only to sprout out in a prolific abundance of amazingly tasty purple spears in February or March. The leaves are also quite flavourful and will provide you and your family with healthy greens throughout the winter.
Particularly frost hardy, this broccoli variety thrives in our British climate. A must-have species for any year-round garden.
