We are finishing late spring, early summer harvest in our Broccoli variety trial in Georgetown. Of the over 20 varieties tested, only a small number have shown potential for extended harvest into late spring/early summer. The majority of varieties in our April 17 planted plot have “knuckled” or have significant brown bead rendering them unsaleable.
One variety that has stood out in our late trial is ‘Millennium’, a variety with noted heat tolerance. While lighter green in color, the majority harvested have been marketable with little “knuckling” or brown bead.
