Plant Information
We can thank our friends in England for sharing this hardy broccoli variety with us. Introduced in the US in the second half of the 19th century, Purple Sprouting Broccoli is loved for its sweet flavor. It's also a favorite thanks to its deep-purple hue, giving it an edge over its traditional green counterpart when it comes to adding color to salads and raw veggie plates. Although great for summertime growing, Purple Sprouting broccoli is best known for being an ideal vegetable for overwintering. It can be planted directly in the garden mid to late fall. The plants will establish hardy root systems in the fall months, and then go dormant until the weather promotes plant growth early in the spring. Whether eaten raw, steamed, or cooked, this beautiful brand of broccoli is full of flavor...and health benefits. The heads lose their purple color when cooked, but definitely not their deliciousness. Broccoli is packed with antioxidants and sulforaphane, believed to help prevent and fight cancer, improve bone health, promote healthier skin, and help with natural detoxification.
