Seed Certified Organic. An early to main season open-pollinated variety that produces uniform 4 to 5 inch moderately domed heads that are mild and sweet on tall leggy plants. A variety noted for its very prolific production of side shoots over a very long season. A variety also know as Oregon Long Neck, a new variety developed from OSU stock bred for traits that make varieties more adaptable to organic production. The plant has a beautiful blue-green color due to the heavy waxy coating which seems to deter insects and give it great resistance to wet conditions, rots, molds, and freezing, a new generation of broccoli's. This variety was selected for its long neck trait permitting ease of harvest. A variety that is one of the sweetest and most uniform open-pollinated varieties available and a winner for those gardeners that want to grow organically.
