Purple Sprouting Broccoli has been gaining popularity in years among Pacific NW farmers and chefs, and for good reason. It is a rare and delicious marketable crop during March-May, when few other vegetables are able to produce food. Red Arrow produces loads of bright purple florets that keep on coming for weeks on end. The plants are incredibly cold hardy, even for PSB standards, and easily survived our two-week Snow-pocalypse of Feb 2019. Sow seeds in mid-late summer for harvest the following March. It’s worth the wait!!! This variety was recommend to us by Adaptive Seeds, who trialed several OPs and Hybrids before settling on Red Arrow.
