Growing local

The happy rich broccoli is a goa people! Healthy plants, lots of shoots and I have successfully raised summer broccoli :). Not as sweet as winter broccoli but still worth the effort. Grown under nets of course and in wicking beds

Hi Valerie, 

It is a cross between a chinese broccoli (I think Gai Lan) which is a little bitter but gives greater heat tolerance and the calebrese type of broccoli which alleviates a little of the bitterness.  Like I said, it's not the best tasting broccoli but for growing your own over summer, well worth the effort. 

Dianne, I actually used this bunch in a broccoli salad.  More will be coming in this weekend.

Your Broccoli looks wonderful, enjoy..  How will you cook it up?

Is that Gai Lan or Chinese brocoli?

Well done, Susan, just shows it can be done.

Yes I don't think you can grow much without a well-secured net over it during our summer
