An MIgardener favorite! Spring rapini is one of our favorite broccoli varieties to grow due to its intense flavor, and a fool proof growth habit. Where other broccoli fall short, this variety is able to be eaten stem, leaves, and all! Best if soaked in a bit of salt water and quickly sautéed with white or red wine to remove the bitterness. The plants are cold tolerant, and with the use of a hoop house or cold frame many can overwinter this green. The plant produces florets much like broccoli, but are small and should be overlooked because the whole plant is edible allowing for far more production in small spaces.

    First time growing rapini here. This is very easy to grow and productive. The taste is more like mustard than real broccoli, but once cooked down it’s pretty tasty.

    These rapini’s grew so well for me. I was amazed at how fast and strong they took off. I have been harvesting them this week. I also like the greens juiced into a smoothy, pretty tasty more bitter than spinach but not as bitter as kale. I have never grown broccoli from seed but these make me feel like giving regular broccoli a try next year! give them a try 🙂
