Fall Broccoli - When To Start It? When To Plant It?


Recommended Posts

I'm posting this now because I see that Farmer John is online (hopefully you see it!)

When do you start fall broccoli seeds?

And when to put plants in the ground?

As an experiment, I started some Sun King Broccoli seeds a few weeks ago and put the plants in the ground last weekend.  I'm starting some more seeds tonight, but I haven't quite figured out when it's too early or too late or just right to start the seeds.

Sun King is a heat tolerant variety and I harvested my last spring crops (second or third cuts of small florets) on July 12th!  I don't know it the heat tolerance will do anything for me in the fall, but I thought I'd try it with my first (and earliest ever) fall crop.
