Broccoli Seeds - Purple Rain F1

Months of great flavoured, nutritious purple spears!

Purple Rain is a British bred, purple-headed stem broccoli, producing a delicious crop from the summer well into the autumn. The main head can be harvested as single broccoli or left to split and form long spears like purple sprouting broccoli. Producing compact broccoli plants compared to purple sprouting broccoli, it is, therefore, better for exposed sites. Easy to grow, it is an exceptionally rewarding brassica and the perfect addition to any home vegetable patch or allotment.

Cropping months before purple sprouting broccoli, you will harvest Purple Rain from July through to November. Giving you plenty of time to add this gorgeous vegetable to your favourite summer and autumnal recipes. Add a splash of colour to bed and borders or raised beds. Height 51-60 (20-24"); spread 41-50cm (16-20").
