  • Broccoli, Nutribud

    Broccoli, Nutribud

    $3.50$9.50
    Brassica oleracea. 55-70 days.

    A great open pollinated broccoli bred in Oregon by plant breeder Dr. Alan Kapuler of Peace Seeds. This is the broccoli to grow for flavor. The sweetest, richest and possibly the most nutritious broccoli for spring and fall. We had a group of middle school kids eating this broccoli raw out of the garden! Deep-green florets, central head and prolific side shoots make this an excellent variety for the home gardener. Tested high in free glutamine, which is a building block of protein, a powerful energy source for the brain, and an important healing nutrient for the body. Not the largest heads and it doesn’t like hot weather.

    Seed produced by Turnip the Beet Farm in Lorane, Oregon.

    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.

    Broccoli, Piracicaba

    $3.50$6.50
    Brassica oleracea. 55 days.

    A heat-tolerant small heading broccoli similar to broccolini. Where it really shines is not in its initial small head but in the endless tasty side shoot production. The leaves are as delicious as the tender green heads and sweet stems. Unique to the world of broccoli varieties, Piracicaba’s small shoots and loose florets make it seem like it could be the primordial ancestor of modern supermarket hybrid broccoli. Though originally from subtropical Brazil, we have found that it thrives in our temperate environment and tolerates some frost. Vegetable farmer Carolina Lees of Corvus Landing Farm located on the coast of Oregon, says that Piracicaba is one of her favorite crops for her cool summers, and her farmer’s market customers love it, too. Originally bred by the University of Piracicaba in Brazil.

    Seed produced by Corvus Landing Farm in Neskowin, Oregon.

  • Cauliflower, Purple Cape

    Cauliflower, Purple Cape (Organic)

    5 out of 5
    $3.80$36.00
    Brassica oleracea. 200 days.

    This overwintering purple cauliflower is another great crop for the hunger gap of late spring. When sown in July, it produces deep purple heads the following February-March. Produces much larger heads and more food than overwintering purple sprouting broccoli, and we are so happy to be able to offer it! Delicious and beautiful. Hardy to zone 7, this extreme selection (5% survivors) made it through lows of 2ºF in December 2013 and had further selection in the 2016 growing season. A staple of the Pitchfork & Crow winter CSA, Purple Cape seed has become hard to find in recent years.

    Seed produced by Pitchfork & Crow in Lebanon, Oregon.
