Emerald Crown

Broccoli Seeds

(Hybrid) 59 days

Compact hybrid plants produce dense, rounded heads with short stems. Unlike many broccoli varieties that turn a purplish color when exposed to frost, Emerald Crown stays bright green even through cold snaps. An ideal choice for fall harvests, or over-wintering in mild-winter climates.

Growing Emerald Crown Broccoli Seeds

Bee introduces how to plant

Plant Broccoli Seeds: Sow broccoli seed in cell packs or flats ½ in. deep, 4 to 6 weeks prior to setting out. Space 10 to 18 in. apart. Can direct sow ½ in. deep, in rows 18 to 36 in. apart. Thin to 8 to 18 in. apart. Kept at 65-75°F., germination is in 7-14 days.

Grow Broccoli: Broccoli is a cool season vegetable that (in our relatively mild climate) we plant in fall, winter and spring. In cold-winter areas broccoli is planted in April and May and even through mid July if the summers are mild. Harvest before the flower buds open. Once the center head is cut, side shoots develop and will produce continuously when harvested regularly.
