Botanical Interests Organic Broccoli Raab
If you have never tried Broccoli Raab, you are in for a gourmet treat! Also known as Italian broccoli, Raab has some differences from regular broccoli. Instead of growing large florets, it has delicate, tender shoots that are often compared to asparagus, but with a spicy but wonderful broccoli-like flavor. The tender stems, buds, and flowers can be enjoyed fresh in salads, stir-fried, or steamed. Budding shoots should be harvested just before the flowers open for best flavor. After cutting, smaller shoots will appear. Keep cutting until stems get too small and tough. Broccoli Raab is also known in Italy as broccolo asparago or asparagus broccoli.
When to plant outside:RECOMMENDED. As soon as soil can be worked in spring or 4-6 weeks before average last spring frost. It also may be planted in late summer for fall harvest. In mild winter climates, it can be sown in late fall for winter or early spring harvest.
When to start inside: 6 weeks before transplanting outside 3-4 weeks before average last frost.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
