This mainstay of the overwintering garden in milder climates, also performs as a main season crop in cooler climates. The deep purple small florets are delicious salad additions when young or added to stir fry. Originally from England. Plant in late spring to early summer for over winter production. Very frost tolerant, mulch well during the coldest part of winter. Plant 1/4 inch deep in individual small pots to transplant.
