A versatile green leaf perfect for salads and pasta dishes. Broccoli is a versatile vegetable which stands tall as a family favourite. It offers a vibrant burst of colour, flavour and texture to a plethora of dishes. Think salads, stir-fries, soups and beyond. Broccoli reliably delivers in both staple and sophisticated meals. As an easy culinary companion, broccoli effortlessly pairs with meats, seafood, cheese -the list goes on. You can prepare broccoli in any way you choose: steaming, roasting, grilling and frying all complement its texture and flavour profile.
Look for a sizeable head with tightly packed buds. When broccoli has been left too late, it may have yellowed buds or even flowers growing. If you see these, you should still harvest the broccoli, allowing for healthy regrowth. Cut at the base of a broccoli using secateurs or a sharpened knife. Make sure to cut at a 45 degree angle in order to preserve the future health of the plant. This may take a couple of attempts, as broccoli tends to be quite thick.
I took a minimum of 60 days to be ready for harvest!
