Early Purple Sprouting broccoli is prized for its beautiful deep-purple sprouts and high nutritional content.
Introduced to the U.S. in the second half of the 19th century, this long-season variety is also a favorite of home gardeners. Enjoy raw for beautiful color in salads and crudites or cook as you would regular broccoli and the color turns the traditional green. Once the central head is harvested, the plants continue to produce plentiful side shoots.
