Brassica oleracea. Circa 1724. This hardy, over-wintering brassica is a splendid and useful plant, producing a largish, central, cauliflower-like white head each spring, surrounded by anything from 5 to 15 smaller white multi-heads. Tastes slightly stronger in flavour than cauliflower, more like a cross between cauliflower and broccoli. Cropping improves if unused heads are removed before they go to seed. Very vigorous, this plant should go on for years. Height: to 90cm. Priced for a 9 cm pot.
