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?

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.
