Romanesco broccoli has been grown in Italy since the sixteenth century. It is sometimes called broccoflower but that name is also applied to green-curded cauliflower cultivars. Also known as coral broccoli, Romanesco broccoli is rich in vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids The vegetable resembles an apple green cauliflower, but is of a light green color and the bud makes a natural fractal. Each bud is composed of a series of smaller buds, all arranged in yet another logarithmic spiral. This self-similar pattern continues at several smaller levels. Although in Italy there are a number of recipes dedicated to Romanesco broccoli, in the rest of the world it is usually prepared like conventional broccoli. Like conventional broccoli, overcooking Romanesco will result in a texture some people find unpleasant. The texture is more tender than cauliflower, making it suited to raw use as crudités. Grows exceptionally well in cool areas. 75-100 days from transplant. Plant seeds 0.5-1.0cm deep and 35-50cm apart in rows 50-60cm apart. Broccoli likes a rich garden bed with ample lime or wood ash. Plant from September to April in temperate districts and one month later in cool districts. In tropical areas from February to May or June. QTY 0.50 grams
