Broccoli, Piracicaba

 5351 - Broccoli, Piracicaba Brassica oleracea. 55 days.

A heat-tolerant, small heading broccoli similar to broccolini. Where it really shines is not in its initial small head, but in the endless tasty side shoot production. The leaves are as delicious as the tender green heads and sweet stems. Unique to the world of broccoli varieties, Piracicaba’s small shoots and loose florets make it seem like it could be the primordial ancestor of modern supermarket hybrid broccoli. Though originally from subtropical Brazil, we have found that it thrives in our temperate environment and tolerates some frost. Originally bred by the University of Piracicaba in Brazil.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
