Not your average broccoli! This cross of Calabrese Broccoli with Chinese Gai Lan is really something special.  Once exclusive to upscale stores, they’re now available to the home gardener as well. Many broccoli varieties are meant to produce one big head - you harvest it and that is the end of it. Some varieties do produce a good amount of side shoots, such as the Italian sprouting broccolis, but they get REALLY BIG and can overwhelm a small garden bed. ‘Apollo’ stays small, just around 2’ tall and wide. Harvest the main head early and it will produce an immense amount of side shoots over a very long period. Just keep up the picking or cut off any flowering stems. So SWEET and TENDER! Grow as other broccolis in well fertilized and watered garden soil.
