Broccoli, Umpqua (Organic)
Brassica oleracea. 50-70 days.
With its sublime blue-green color, Umpqua Broccoli looks delicious even from a distance. The robust plants produce 6-8” heads, and have good side shoot production. Early to size up from spring planting. Umpqua resists premature bolting triggered by cold springtime weather. Beautiful and stress tolerant, especially for an open pollinated variety. Best planted for the spring and fall. Named after one of Oregon’s great rivers. Umpqua Broccoli was bred by Tim Peters of Peters Seed and Research in Oregon.
Seed produced by Uprising Organics in Lynden, Washington.
As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested and found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.
