Green Goliath Broccoli is our best selling broccoli! It is very flavorful and has a beautiful blue-green color. Developed for home gardens, it has a good sized head; one of the best open pollinated broccoli varieties. Heads mature over a three week period; good side shoots follow after center head is harvested. Green Goliath is ready to start picking about 55 days after plants are set or thinned in garden. This is no ordinary broccoli because it often outyields all the others, including hybrids. For an early start on production, sow broccoli seeds indoors about 6 weeks before outdoor planting time. These plants need to be in a sunny area or under plant lights. If you want a longer harvest, sow indoors in late winter or early spring for the first crop, and then again in summer for a fall crop. Broccoli grows best in cool weather and full sun.
