Vegetable Explorer Rabe '60 Days' Broccoli Seeds

Product Code : VE13626

Small Image of Vegetable Explorer Rabe '60 Days' Broccoli Seeds

A favorite vegetable in Italy, it is very quick to grow. Generally the whole plant is harvested and leaves, stems and flower buds are all eaten. The small flower buds can be picked and cooked separately but you do need a lot of them! It can be sown and harvested successionally for many months. It has quite a strong, pungent 'brassica' flavour, perhaps as it is not actually a broccoli hence its many other names such as rapini, rappone, rabe and turnip broccoli.
