This one does well for me. After harvesting the main head, it produces large side shoots. It performs well here with our fluctuating winter temps.

A hybrid. Medium large central head followed by multiple side shoots. This not a top performer under my conditions. There are a number of early broccolis that produce more and better heads. It does produce, but the plants and heads are small. It is also later maturing, which pushes into into our hot season. I have been cutting Everest for three weeks and now starting on sideshoots. Belstar is almost ready, but not quite.
