Recommended planting requirements:  Like cabbages, the best tasting broccoli is those that grow very quickly. To ensure this add plenty of organic matter to well-worked soil. Broccoli is more sensitive to warm weather than cabbage and should be protected with shade cloth in areas that have high temperatures in the fall like zones 9 and 10.

Growing recommendations: Broccoli is a cool-season crop that is best planted with plenty of time to mature. Regular watering and additions of fertilizer can drastically improve your harvest. For fall crops start seed 10-12 weeks before the first hard freeze date or desired harvest time. Transplant into the ground during cool temperatures like the morning or evening. Do not allow the seedling to dry out during its acclimation period. Broccoli requires a steady supply of moisture in well-drained fertile soil.  For zones 9 and 10 or any areas where hot weather is present in the fall, we recommend a deep layer of mulch around the plant to retain moisture in the soil.

Harvesting & Storage: You can harvest broccoli as soon as the heads are large enough for use.  Wash only before use to prevent premature rot.
