Everest broccoli seeds produce the highest quality broccoli for harvesting late summer to fall. The 15cm (6") wide, blue green heads are highly dome-shaped, with small, tightly packed beads. These are large plants that have very high tolerance to downy mildew, and moderate tolerance to brown bead and head rot. For fall harvest broccoli production, choose this exceptional hybrid variety and be rewarded by its uniformity, flavour, and disease resistance. The harvest period is concentrated, so a staggered sowing three weeks apart will produce a larger crop over a longer period. Everest broccoli freezes well for winter meals.
Matures in 50 days. (Hybrid seeds)
