HOW TO GROW BROCCOLI

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost and plant out 2 weeks before frost; or direct seed 2 weeks before last frost. For fall harvest, transplant 8–12 weeks before first frost. In a hoophouse, you can plant 2-3 later. We seed in March under cover, first of May in the open. We seed from July 1 to August 15 for fall harvest in zone 8b. Broccoli grows best in the 60s˚F so plant for best temperatures in your area. For seed in Zone 7b or warmer, direct sow in early January under Row cover. Soil pH 6.0-7.5. Hardiness zones 4-10. Biennial.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 6,000-9,000 seeds per ounce. Average 58M seeds per acre. Federal germination standard: 75%. Usual seed life: 5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 1 mile.

This broccoli is still under development, but we couldn’t wait to share it. Solstice produces broccoli heads 2 weeks before main season varieties. It can be replanted mid summer for a fall crop. Blue-green tight consistent heads, 3” in diameter are produced high up on the stalk for easy harvest. Solstice broccoli is bred to fill early and late harvest growing slots. Often it is grown both before and after a main season summer broccoli variety. Spring plants will produce small to medium size heads 2 or more weeks ahead of summer varieties, and follow with excellent side-shoot heads. Seeds started in flats late in March produce plants ready for harvest by June 21. Solstice is selected over 6 generations at Lupine Knoll Farm from seed provided to us by the Oregon State University Horticulture Department. Also known as Oregon Long Neck.
