A popular variety producing large and rewarding late summer harvests of tasty and tender purple shoots. Delicious steamed or lightly boiled and simply served with butter, in stir-fries or simple pasta dishes. Not only do they taste good but the rich colour looks great on the plate. Well known for its nutritional value, sprouting broccoli is packed full of vitamin C as well as vitamin A and antioxidants.
Harvest from June to October. Cut the shoots when they are approximately 15cm long. If you harvest them regularly then cropping can go on for several weeks.
