Zamboni raab (aka rapini), has small delicate leaves, stems, and buds, and a flavour slightly on the "wild" side. Zamboni broccoli seeds plants are approximately 52cm (22") tall and do not produce a central head but abundant side shoots which must be kept picked. Early and productive, plant this variety in succession from early spring into summer for salads and stir-fries. This heirloom rapini is surprisingly easy to grow and so productive that it really pays its own way. Be sure to practice succession planting for a longer harvest and so that the whole row isn't ready to harvest on the same day.
Matures in 45 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)
