Brassica oleracea var. botrytis
Is a large broccolo from northern Italy where it has been grown for centuries. It can handle frost but should not be planted in too cool soil in spring as the heads can get a reddish hue then. The harvesting time is extensive with great variation in the heads, from the size of a fist to giants of 2kg (4 lbs.). Romanesco is a very beautiful vegetable of delicious flavour. A portion contains about 200 seeds.
