Ratings & Reviews
All leaves no head
Excellent germination rate. However, although plants got large, they did not produce a head or any flowers.
Beautiful plant , germinated from seed. But unfortunately no head/floret.
A perfect brassica for colder climates
This brassica likes to be cool. Although it says full sun, I found that it prefers morning sun & shade when it's hottest out. It loves my zone 5 CO climate and it produced nice heads towards the end of the summer.
These seeds produced excellent looking and tasting Romanesco heads. Highly recommended. I saved some of my own seed this year because of how well these plants did. (USDA zone 5b).
