Calabrese is an old heirloom Italian variety that can withstand some warmer summer temperatures especially with climate change shifting growing tolerances. Many of the available present day broccoli varieties are hybrids bred for commercial agriculture and may not produce seed for saving.
Start cutting buds and smaller heads at 60 days after transplant to 90 days. Versatile and forgiving because of weather tolerances and side shoots for extended harvest. Cut and come again.
Start seeds in early May to transplant out to warm garden soil. This variety can take some night cooler temperatures and also some heat in summer.
