Eden Project Friarielli Broccoli ‘Spigariello - Brassica olearacea

Current stock: 0

This 'broccoletti' is one of the most highly prized vegetables in Italy. Its a leafy green rather than the broccoli flowers and regrows after cutting. Neapolitans simply revere it, and use it with olives and chillies in their two most famous and popular dishes - pasta and pizza. It can also be eaten on its own as a vegetable, parboiled, tossed in seasoned olive oil with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. Sow from May to the end of July. @750 seeds

Annual: It is a summer brassica rather than a winter one, so sow from April, 1cm deep – it will survive light frosts. Easy to grow and full of flavour, this excellent vegetable is well worth growing.

Approximate seed quantity: @1800 / 6g

Broccolo 'spigariello'

We grow this variety every season because the more 'spears' you pick the more keep on coming! A family favourite as the shoots are so tender, cooking in 1 minute with the home made pasta.
