Early Rapini is an Italian heirlooms that takes 62 days to form little flower heads. I married an Italian and he LOVES broccoli raab. BUT, it is so hard to find organically grown broccoli raab in the stores AND, any broccoli raab we do find is never "the same" as he remembers it. UNTIL I started to grow my own...

I plant in very early spring, direct sowing as soon as the soil can be worked. I always cover with floating row covers. I plant again in the fall. Usually my fall crop continues producing until a deep freeze. Often it lives through the winter. I also let some broccoli raab go to seed and for years I have had it retuning by self-sowing in the same bed. Use the thinning for microgreens. Simply cook it with olive oil and garlic. Yum!  -Nancy
