Broccoli Calabrese

Broccoli Calabrese is a traditional, heirloom variety known for its robust growth, large heads, and numerous side shoots. Originating from Italy, this variety is valued for its reliability, excellent flavor, and nutritional benefits. Calabrese broccoli produces dark green, tightly packed heads with a slightly peppery taste, making it a favorite among both home gardeners and commercial growers.

Features

  • Calabrese broccoli plants are vigorous and bushy, typically reaching a height of 24-30 inches. The plants are known for producing a main central head followed by numerous side shoots, extending the harvest period.
  • The main heads are large, dense, and dark green, usually measuring 4-8 inches in diameter. The side shoots are smaller but equally nutritious and flavorful.
  • This variety matures in approximately 60-90 days from transplanting, depending on growing conditions. The main head is harvested first, followed by multiple harvests of side shoots.
  • Calabrese broccoli is known for its high productivity, providing multiple harvests over an extended period.
  • The heads have a slightly peppery, rich flavor and a tender texture, making them versatile for various culinary uses.

Application

  • Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Transplant seedlings outdoors when they are 4-6 weeks old and have developed several true leaves. Space plants 18-24 inches apart in rows spaced 24-30 inches apart.
  • Calabrese broccoli prefers well-drained, fertile soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Incorporate compost or well-rotted manure into the soil before planting.
  • The plants require full sun, receiving at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Water consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
  • Apply a balanced fertilizer at planting and side-dress with a nitrogen-rich fertilizer during the growing season to support vigorous growth and head formation.
  • Monitor for common pests such as aphids, cabbage worms, and flea beetles. Use organic pesticides, row covers, and crop rotation to manage pests and diseases. Handpick larger pests and encourage beneficial insects to keep pest populations under control.
