Brassica oleracea var. Italica Marathon
This description is for Brassica oleracea var. Italica: Brassica oleracea var. Italica or Purple Sprouting Broccoli is an edible variety with compact purple colour flower heads that appear in the spring. Purple sprouting broccoli has come into favour over recent years and can be found on many restaurant menus. This variety thrives in alkaline loamy or sandy soil. Its a tasty and unusual alternative to the usual green broccoli. It does take up space in the vegetable garden, thats why youll pay more for it at the greengrocers than the larger green broccoli. Snip off the buds for your cooking and you should find new shoots will appear.
