Growing Information

Mini Broccoli

CULTURE: Mini broccoli prefers a well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, a pH of 6.0–7.5 and a consistent supply of moisture throughout the growing season. Irrigate regularly for best results.
DIRECT SEEDING: Tolerates light frost. From early spring to late summer, sow 10–12 seeds/ft., ¼–½" deep, rows 18–24" apart. Thin plants to 4–6" apart.
EARLY SPRING CROP: Use early and midseason varieties. Sow 2–3 seeds per cell in 72-cell plug flats, 3–4 seeds/in. in 20 row flats, or in outdoor beds ¼" deep. Seedlings should be ready to transplant in 3–4 weeks. If possible keep soil temperature over 75°F (24°C) until germination, then reduce air temperature to about 60°F (16°C). Ensure good air circulation and light. Transplant outdoors 6–12" apart in rows 18–36" apart. Mini broccoli prefers cooler growing temperatures, between 55–75°F (13–24°C), optimum being 60–70°F (16–21°C), but will produce good crops under warmer, summer conditions.
FALL CROP: Use midseason varieties. Start seedlings as above in May and transplant to the garden in June–July. To ensure mature heads, seed the crop early in areas where heavy freezes occur early in fall.
WINTER CROP: Successful mini broccoli crops can be grown where winters are mild (temperatures rarely below 32°F (0°C)). Transplants can be set out from September to February in these regions.
HARVEST: Clip and bunch entire plants when buds appear, or pick just buds for extended yield.
Use fabric row covers on the day of planting to exclude maggot flies and flea beetles.
Prevent disease with crop rotation and good sanitation.
Note: We only stock seed lots that have been tested free of black rot in a sample of 30,000 seeds.
From direct seeding; subtract 10–15 days if using transplants.
1 oz./1,000', 1M/166', 5M/830', 175M/acre @ 6 seeds/ft. rows 18" apart.
SEEDS/OZ.: 10,000–16,500 (Avg. 13,000).
250 seeds (unless otherwise noted), sows 20'.
