BROCCOLI, Emerald Crown

Emerald Crown is very uniform, compact, heavy and dome-headed with small to medium dark blue-green beads. A favourite market variety because it has high yielding crown cuts with a short trim. Emerald Crown handles warmer weather well allowing for later spring harvest and summer harvest. Heads resist purpling (Anthocyanin) in cooler weather.
