BROCCOLI ‘Di Ciccio’ Vegetable Seeds

Botanical Name: Brassica oleracea Italica Group

‘Di Ciccio’ is a reliable Italian variety first introduced in 1890. The central blue-green head is 7 – 10 cm wide with an extended harvest of side shoots produced once the central head is harvested. It has an excellent flavor; good for steaming, stir-fries, and for freezing.

Plant Type: Annual cool season crop; frost hardy

Plant Height: 60 – 90 cm

Sow When:

  • Temperate Subtropical: Late Dec – May; very cool areas Oct-Feb
  • Tropical: Late autumn to early winter; hybrids will perform better (unlikely to produce well)

Germination:

  • 5 – 10 days
  • Depth: 6 mm deep

Position: Full sun

Sow Where: Sow into a seed tray or seedbed

Soil Type: Fertile, well-drained, pH 6.5 – 7.2; heavy feeder, add compost

Rows: 60 cm apart

Spacing: 40 cm between plants

Details: Transplant seedlings by first removing the seed leaves and planting deeper, up to the 1st set of true leaves; this stabilizes and speeds maturity

Harvest: 50 – 60 days: harvest while heads are still tight and dark green
