Calabrese Broccoli is a popular heirloom variety originated in Italy. Broccolis originated from wild cabbage native to parts of Europe. The cool-weather relative of cabbage is easy to grow and produces a large, compact head. The vitamin-rich head is actually a cluster of tiny flower buds. This is a wonderfully tasty and highly nutritious microgreen. Plant in shallow saucers for winter microgreens and harvest by snipping off tender young shoots close to leaves with scissors. The young shoots are colorful and are tender and sweet.
A member of the Brassica family (mustard family), broccoli grows well with basil, beans, cucumbers, dill, garlic, hyssop, marigold, mint, nasturtium, onion, potato, radish, rosemary, thyme, sage and tomatoes. Broccoli dislikes grapes and rue.
