Brassica oleracea var. italica. USDA organic. Cool season. 48 days. Sow in early spring or late summer. Heirloom. Introduced in 1890, this delizioso, reliable Italian heirloom produces an abundance of small to medium florets. If you have eaten broccoli in Italy, you know why Di Cicco is superb. It produces numerous, small to medium sized heads well into the summer for more delicious broccoli more often! We recommend harvesting the main head when it is 3 inches in diameter; this will encourage side shoots. Di Cicco is a good freezer variety, and leaves are also edible, cooker like chard.
