Minestra Nera Broccoli
Brassica oleracea (Italica) 'Minestra Nera'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
(Cavolo broccolo a getti) A traditional form of broccoli from southern Italy known as minestra nera or "black soup". It does not have the dense heads typical of ordinary broccoli but has instead numerous small loose heads that keep coming as they are picked. These heads, along with the nearby tender young leaves, are delicious cooked, steamed, fried, or baked -- sort of like a less bitter version of rapini. They can be added to salad, pizza or served as an appetizer. Traditionally they are added to Neapolitan black bean soup. Sow in late spring for fall harvest. 90-100 days.
