This is said to be an Annual, but mine just over-wintered in Zone 8 (a mild winter)

Spigariello Liscia
Broccolo Spigariello
Brassica oleracea var. 'Spigariello'
Italian heirloom leaf broccoli
deep blue-green leaves & tops: sweet, mild broccoli / kale flavor

O.P. 45-65 days
Full Sun Annual
12" - 24" tall (Mine went to 32-36" when I didn't clip the tips)
16"- 24" spacing (I planted 9-12" apart)

Direct-sow ⅛" deep or
indoors in peat pellets for TX after above 25 º
Very cold-hardy - once established, OK above 25º

Broccoli (Brassica oleracea 'Spigariello')

Well, that looks very interesting and I have never grown it ... or eaten it either, I don't believe. Thumbs up As long as it's good and frost-hardy, I'd like to try it.

What would you like to trade?

You can send a private Treemail, if you'd prefer. I know you have a very good trading reputation. Green Grin!

Treemail it is ... but don't beleive what you hear!

I am slow, slow slow! I got involved with something that takes more time than I have, and I'm hugely behind in all my projects.

My suggestion is to wait until I say I've shipped, and THEN send something back.

Any 1-2 of these, or tiny quantitites of 2-3 kinds, whichever you have more of.

Mustard Greens 'Red Giant'
Mustard Greens 'Tendergreen'
Kale 'Red Russian'
Swiss Chard 'Rhubarb'

I'll check tonight, but I'm sure 50 seeds would be no problem.

SongofJoy, I have Par-Cel seeds if you are interested. That the best substitute for celery. It holds up really well in zone 5a.
