Green Magic is an early-maturing calabrese broccoli that produces tightly-packed heads and lots of side shoots once the main head has been harvested. One of the easiest broccolis to grow, Green Magic is both high yielding and very reliable.
Green Magic F1 Broccoli Seeds
One of our favorite early varieties of broccoli, Green Magic features smooth, uniform heads that are mature just in time for summer. The heads are almost blue-green in colour and form a lovely, tighter head than other early varieties. Once the main head is picked, this broccoli will set out yummy side shoots all summer long. Unlike many early varieties Green Magic has superb heat tolerance and won’t bolt at the first sign of summer warmth. It’s also disease resistant and stands up quite well against downy mildew, white rust and other brassica diseases.
Great for fresh use and for processing (freezing, canning, etc.)
Note for organic gardeners: Green Magic f1 seed is pre-treated against soil-borne diseases and not suitable for use in certified organic production.
RHS Award of Garden Merit winner.
