Ratings & Reviews

Broccoli- Di Ciccio

One of my favourites, perfect for a single or couple household as it produces a smaller main head then goes on and on, producing side shoots. I overplanted last year expecting it to produce a few side shoots then stop, so this year I'm scaling down as it produced too much.
