‘Aspabroc’ Baby Broccoli
Also known as Broccolini. Delicious and versatile, it combines the taste of broccoli with the slender look of asparagus. The whole plant is edible. Cut the stems, leaves and buds into pieces and mix them with pepper and Pak Choï or to your liking.
Pick the first central branches after 50-60 days to encourage the branches to grow around. Produce for at least 4 weeks.
At planting, divide the shoots from your pot and leave 60 cm (24″) between the plants. Provide fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the beginning of its growth in the garden. Change with compost if the soil is not fertile. Give enough water for better growth. The mulch helps to retain moisture. Fertilize about 1 time a week with a well-balanced potassium calcium/nitrate formulation at 150 to 200 ppm nitrogen.
Good companionship: chamomile, fennel, mint, rosemary, and sage.
Enemies: Eggplant, pepper, potato and tomato
