This is the earliest maturing broccoli that I have tried. It is easy to grow, with no problems. Heads are smaller than Green Comet, Packman, Superdome, Galleon etc, but is noticeably earlier and good quality.

I had moderately good luck with my spring planting but my fall planting is the best broccoli I have ever grown. So far I have picked one 8 inch head and one 10 inch head and have several more growing in the 6 inch range. And very few bugs to contend with. If you haven't tried a fall planting, give it a try, and oh, by the way, they're absolutely delicious!

A F1 Hybrid, seed will not come true. This one develops its main stalk in 43 days from sprouting, which is very early. Good quality, good flavor, produces a lot of side-shoots.
