The Q&A Archives: Broccoli Raab

Question: When do you plant broccoli raab here for fall harvest?
I've tried planting it in February and harvested it in May but it was tough! Can I plant it all winter?

Answer: Broccoli Raab matures in just 40 days and grows best in early spring. If you planted yours in February it should have been ready for harvest by mid-March or early April. Over-mature Broccoli Raab will be tough and unflavorful. Harvest within 40 days of planting. Adjusting your planting date to late February for a first of April harvest will give you tender leaves and buds.
