  • This variety does not produce the large central head of the hybrids but throws a profusion of individual spears over a long period starting in August.
  • Pack size: 600 Seeds
  • WHEN TO SOW

    April and May.

    WHERE TO SOW

    Sowings can be made in trays or modules under glass at 13°C. Later sowings can be made into a seed bed in shallow drills 2cm (3/4") deep in short rows.

    WHAT TO DO NEXT

    As soon as glasshouse seedlings show their first pair of leaves, prick off into trays 5cm (2") apart or thin modules to one seedling per cell. Gradually harden off before planting out, spacing plants 45cm (18in) apart between plants and 45cm (18in) between the rows. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to 7-10cm (3-4in) apart , then once plants are 15cm (6in) tall , they can be lifted and transplanted to their final planting positions, spaced the same as detailed above.

    MATURITY

    July to September

    HANDY TIP

    Calabrese quickly goes from a green spear to a flower head. If you have too many to use, cut and freeze for winter use.

    NUTRITIONAL VALUES

    Excellent source of vitamins A and C and a good source of iron.
