Positive Farmerdill On May 3, 2004, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

A 1998 main crop broccoli from Syngenta (Rogers). Dark Blue-Green 5-6 inch semi- domed central heads. Resistant to downy mildew. Promoted for fresh market in the northeastern US and Canada and the Pacific northwest. It grows well in Georgia. Heads medium size but tight. Not my favorite but quite satisfactory. Shows no sign of brown bead which is a problem here in the spring with some varieties.
