Broccoli 'Green Goliath'
Brassica oleracea (Italica Group)
Green Goliath is a popular variety of Broccoli, which belongs to the Mustard genus (Brassica oleracea (Italica Group) 'Green Goliath').
Bred especially for the home gardener, to give an early and extended harvest. Large headed, tight budded, blue-green center heads mature over a three-week period, not all at once. Good side shoots follow after center head is harvested. Ready to start picking about 55 days after plants are set or thinned in garden.
GARDEN HINTS: For early start, sow seeds indoors about 6 weeks before outdoor planting time in a sunny area or under plant lights. Sow indoors in late winter or early spring for first crop and then again in summer for a fall crop. Grows best in cool weather and full sun. The key to success is to grow broccoli where they are sure to get a full days worth of sun, and no shade.
Pick broccoli when the heads have formed into tight, firm clusters. Using a sharp knife, cut off the head with about 6 inches of stem attached. This will encourage growth of the side shoots for additional, smaller harvests.
Green Goliath Broccoli needs a moderate amount of maintenance, so some level of previous experience comes in handy when growing this plant. Ensure that you are aware of the soil, sun, ph and water requirements for this plant and keep an eye out for pests.
