October - April I Worcestershire, UK
Undervalued by many, we tend to think of broccoli as a year round vegetable. In actual fact, Purple Sprouting Broccoli has a very distinct season, flourishing in the colder months of the year. During this natural season the plants grow slowly, producing an exceptionally tender stalk and tight florets, nothing like the woody, tough examples we see through the year. Natoora source their Purple Sprouting straight from Martin, whose family have been saving seeds from their best performing plants each season for over fifty years. Unlike the broccoli produced year-round in artificial growing conditions, Martin’s unique heritage variety is fully adapted to the local soil and climate.
