Grow your own baby (or stem) broccoli — a gourmet treat! Instead of focusing its energy on producing one large broccoli head, Artwork yields tender, dark green side shoots with bite-size heads and long, edible stems; perfect for stir-fries and sautéing. Pinch the main head when it reaches 1 to 1.5” to trigger side shoot formation. Harvest the smaller heads that follow when stems are 6 to 7” long. Plants should yield many side shoots through the growing season—a true broccoli bouquet. Resists bolting in warm weather. 55-85 days. Photo courtesy of All America Selections.
Care: Plant 20-30″ apart in rows 24-36″ apart in full sun, cool moist soil.
Late-season vegetables adapted to tolerate both the heat of late summer and the cool nights of fall. Harvest in late summer or fall. See our Fall & Winter Vegetable Guide for specific planting/harvest times & freeze-out temperatures.
