Calabrese Monclano F1

Description

Calabrese seeds - Monclano is a club root resistant variety which produces a firm, domed head with a good standing ability. To be planted in June to July.

 

Increasing in popularity every year, Calabrese (Green Sprouting Broccoli) has a much milder flavour than the purple and white sprouting types. The hybrid varieties produce a large, central green head and once this has been harvested a second crop of smaller individual spears is produced where the leaf stem joins the main stem.

When to sow Monclano Calabrese Seeds

April to May

Where to Sow

Sowings can be made in trays or modules under glass at 13°C. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep in short rows.

What to do Next

As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart between plants and 45cm (18in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart, then once plants are 15cm (6in) tall, they can be lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.

Harvest

July to September

Handy Tip

Keep plants well watered during very dry weather especially as heads start to form.

Nutritional Values
