Atlantis is a broccoli/Gailon cross that competes favorably with baby broccoli sold in the supermarket. Florets are slightly bigger than Happy Rich and the yield potential is higher. Good taste but not quite as sweet as Happy Rich. For maximum yield, cut main floret as soon as it matures to encourage additional side shoot production. If harvested 1-2 times per week, plants will bear well for 4-6 weeks. Avg. 90,000 seeds/lb. Packet: 100 seeds.
Latin Name: Brassica oleracea
