Broccoli Plant

Hey guys and gals,

I planted this broccoli back in March. Its had gotten huge but I have not noticed any broccoli heads yet. Anyone have experience with this?

Thanks for your help

Re: Broccoli Plant

Broccoli days to maturity is typically listed as 75 days to as much as 90 days so I think yours just need a little more time. Hopefully it won't get too hot before then.

Re: Broccoli Plant

Patience! It does not look full sized yet (broccoli plants are big!). In the meantime, if you don't take too many and slow down its energy collection, you can eat the broccoli leaves. Broccoli is very closely related to cabbage and we eat the cabbage leaves all the time.
