Posted Apr 02 2009 5:10pm

There are 3 types of sprouting broccoli:

    1. white  sprouting broccoli

The white broccoli has small white flowering tips.  These are snapped off when about 2″ long.

Steam or boil them for 10-15 minutes for a very special veg.  Ours are about ready to harvest from February & through March.

 2.  purple sprouting broccoli

The purple sprouters are a week or so later than the white sprouting broccoli, & have a stronger taste.
    3.  perpetual sprouting broccoli

The perpetual broccoli comes up year after year, so rather messes the rotation up. But it is easy to grow.

The 3 types of sprouting broccoli give a good spread of green vegetables in the spring when not much else is ready to harvest.
