Waltham 29, organic seeds
Brassica oleracea var. botrytis cymosa
Is a hardy sort for autumn of vigorous, sturdy, slightly compact plants. The central head is of medium size, 12 "“ 15 cm in diameter with relatively densely packed buds. The harvest of side-shoots is large, chiefly later in autumn when Waltham, which is not all that fond of the heat of summer, thrives. It tolerates quite a lot of frost and often yields fine crops until Christmas. It was introduced in 1951 and was the standard sort of autumn broccoli for a longtime. A portion contains about 150 seeds.
