From our friends at New England Seed, this is a really interesting Italian variety.  Foglia D’Ulivo is the famous “Olive Leaf” broccoli raab, so called because the leaves resemble those of an olive tree. Cut off the entire top of the plant and eat leaves, stem, flower buds and all. The leaves are very tender and bitter tasting. This plant has much higher leaves to flower bud ratio than other broccoli raab varieties. 60 days. Sow as soon as the soil can be worked in the early spring. You can also sow a crop in late summer for fall harvests as this plant tolerates mild frosts. ALWAYS cover broccoli raab with row covers to protect it from pests. My husband says he can never get broccoli raab that is bitter enough, so I am sure this is going to be HIS new favorite this year.
