Grew these in containers. First bunch did ok, but the heads just didn't grow to a very good size. A later batch grew a bit bigger, but the side shoots didn't develop much after the first harvest.
I shall try try again though.

From your friends at Botanical Interests: This very tasty broccoli from Italy produces an abundance of small to medium heads. The very productive plants produce lots of various sized florets throughout the season, giving you a long harvest period. We recommend harvesting the main head when it is 3” in diameter – this will encourage more side shoots. Sowing seeds every two weeks throughout the cool growing season will ensure a continual harvest. Excess harvest can be blanched and then frozen. Di Cicco Broccoli is also an excellent broccoli seed for sprouting.

Information only. I have not grown this variety.
A very old cultivar, introduced to US gardeners in 1890. Produces a 4" head and many side shoots. A nice variety for freezing.
This is an early variety.
