The Q&A Archives: Broccoli Varieties for Commercial Growers

Question: We grow broccoli commercially and would like to know which varieties commercial growers in California grow. Also, can you give me a little bit of information on the broccoli variety Premium Crop'? Thank you. Gary

Answer: Many commercial growers grow a variety called 'Marathon'. 'Premium Crop' is also a good mid to late season variety producing 10" diameter heads, without many sideshoots. It's not as tolerant to stress (water...) as 'Marathon'. Marathon is available through, Johnny's Selected Seeds Foss Hill Rd. Albion, ME 04910 207-437-4395
