Other Considerations

Broccoli is shallow rooted. Be careful with even shallow cultivation.

Harvest

Broccoli heads should be harvested while the heads are still tight. Check fields every 2-3 days since once heads have loosened, quality is quickly compromised. After the main head is harvested, some varieties produce side shoots with smaller heads. Regular harvesting of side shoots will encourage further growth. Cool broccoli immediately after harvest to retain quality.

Storage

Store at 32°F for 1-2 weeks.
