The dome-shaped heads of this outstanding variety are uniform, deep green, and very tasty.

Gypsy broccoli seeds were bred for heat resistance, so it holds better in summer heatwaves and is extremely slow bolting. What that means for the gardener is less urgency when harvesting from mid-summer to the fall. The large plants are tolerant of powdery mildew, and productive even in cool weather. After the main head is harvested, lots of small but delicious side shoots are produced, extending the harvest potential for the home gardener. Gypsy is a proven performer in coastal gardens, and a dependable variety for the Pacific Northwest.

Matures in 62 days. (Hybrid seeds)

Start indoors right around the last frost date or later in spring for summer harvest in 2 to 3 months. For fall harvest, start indoors late spring and transplant in July, harvesting just before the first frost date. For overwintering sprouting broccoli in mild winter areas, start indoors late March to mid-April, and harvest the following February to May. Seeds will germinate in 7-10 days. Optimal temperature for germination: 10-30°C (50-85°F).
