Broccoli Growing Information
Transplant: Sow in trays at 1/4” depth, 3-4 weeks before desired transplant date.
Can be started spring through mid-summer or all year round in milder climates. Soil temperature for germination is 55-75° F.
Spacing: 12-18" apart in rows that are 18-36" apart.
Growth needs: Grows best in well-drained soil that is high in organic matter. Irrigate regularly and add nutrients for best yield.
Broccoli is a cool-weather crop that does not tolerate high heat well. Be sure to choose appropriate varieties for the temperature and season.
Harvest: When crowns are of desired size and while beads are still tight.
Storage: Store at 32° F with 95% relative humidity for 10-12 days. Icing immediately after harvest can help prolong shelf life.
Sprouting Broccoli Growing Information
Transplant: Start in trays at ¼” depth in mid-summer for overwintering varieties or 3-4 weeks before desired transplant date for all-season varieties.
Soil temperature for germination is 55-75° F.
Spacing: 12-24" apart in rows that are 24-30" apart.
Growth needs: Likes well-drained soil that is high in organic matter. Irrigate regularly and add nutrients for best yield.
Overwintered sprouting broccoli needs a vernalization period of temperatures consistently below 50° F.
Harvest: Cut central head while beads are still tight, and typically 3-4" diameter, to stimulate growth of side shoots.
Cut stems at 4-8" for bunching or bulk sales. Harvest regularly for continued production of up to 6 weeks.
