A better performer than several I have tried. Main shoots are medium large (6-7") (despite little critters chewing holes in their leaves) and taste good. Few side shoots (1-2") so far. Every one I planted ripened about the same time, so next year I'll have to stagger the seedings.

This one did not perform well for me. The heads were small and it did not like our fluctuating winter temps.

A medium early medium green domed broccoli from Sakata. Due to plant vigor it is recommended to "organic' growers. A Japanese hybrid. It performs reasonably well here. It is earlier than advertised. Central heads are small ( 6 inches) with medium bead. Plant is large, so should set multiple sideshoots. An ok cultivar, but there are several I like much better.
