Regular price $2.50 On Sale

 Open-pollinated. A gourmet edible cross by Frank Morton of a large green broccoli with two colorful kales. Although this iteration is more uniform than previous ones, it is still somewhat variable. Wavy-looking deeply cut purple leaves with rounded edges are punctuated by pink veins. The sweet broccoli flavor of the head and abundant side shoots is augmented by the kale-like qualities of the leaves, especially as fall delivers its first cold nights. An imposing plant 2½' tall, spreading 2–3' makes quite a spectacle. Purple leaves, stems and heads cook to a dark green or can be enjoyed raw in salads. Nutrient-dense, just like other broccoli. Full of potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, A, oodles of B vitamins, potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, protein, and the list goes on! As with all broccoli, eat the leaves, stems, and flower heads. Enjoy it vibrantly purple raw, or cook it and it will lose some of it's purple color and turn traditional green.
