Broccoli ‘Green Magic’

It’s a toss-up whether Green Magic is more valuable for its buttery flavor or its terrific heat tolerance. This uniform, dependable blue-green beauty is beloved in gardens across the country, wowing with generous yields made even greater by the excellent tolerance of downy mildew, a foe of many other varieties. Compact and very productive, it will become your go-to broccoli from the very first season you grow it.

Green Magic Hybrid sets smooth, nicely domed heads with mid-size beads very tightly packed. It’s suitable for picking two ways: either the entire crown in one fell swoop or the central stalk first, then numerous side-shoots as they arise afterward. Cutting the main head encourages side-shoot growth.
