description for "Broccoli: Brassica oleracea (Botrytis Group) 'Romanesco Italia'"

Documented to be in existence before the 1600's, this broccoli has been enjoyed for centuries. Its pleasing nutty taste and unique appearance are still relevant today. This easy to grow variety tastes best if raw or lightly cooked. Its whorled heads are a beautiful apple/green color. This variety is sure to add both color and texture in or out of the garden. Maturity 75-100 days. Edited by S. Derr
