At Johnny's we work with top suppliers as well as lesser-known breeders to identify broccoli varieties that will work for all growers. After comparison trialing, we select only the best-tasting, most attractive, and easiest-to-grow varieties. Choose from full-size head varieties or mini broccoli types: broccoli raab, leaf broccoli, sprouting broccoli, and broccoli X gailon. To succession-plant broccoli for optimal performance and yield, follow our Broccoli Planting Program.
