[60-80 days] This Italian Calabrese sprouting broccoli produces a non-stop crop through the late summer, fall, and even through much of the winter. It grows up to 2’ (60cm) tall and produces heads up to 7” (17cm) in diameter. But the best part of sprouting broccoli is the side shoots, which if you keep them picked, will keep coming on all season long and well into the winter. What’s more, the leaves, stems, and buds are all quite tasty and will give you a plethora of greens over a long growing season.
