Brassicas
  

Snowball Cauliflower:  This large plant grows upright, vigorous leaves that curl over and “self-wrap” the pure white heads. This curling only occurs in cool weather, so Snowball is perfect for fall harvest. The 17-20cm (6½-8″) wide heads are smooth, crunchy, and delicious either raw or cooked. Tried and true, Early Snowball has been around for years and has won the hearts of home gardeners and market growers alike.



Long Island Brusell Sprouts:  
 Historians believe that the ancient Romans first cultivated Brussels sprouts, but Belgium has the greatest claim on this tiny vegetable. Long Island is a semi-dwarf variety, growing to about 24" tall, so it may require staking.  As the leaves on the stem turn yellow, take them off so that the sprouts can freely develop. About four months after transplanting, the first sprouts should be ready. Twist them off the stem from the bottom up; sprouts about 1" in diameter are the most tender. Long Island sprouts freeze quite well.

DiCiccio Brocolli:  Productive, Italian heirloom broccoli especially good for freezing.  De Cicco is an excellent choice for extended harvests. Vigorous plants yield 3-4", blue-green heads. After cutting the main head, more side shoots develop, producing many more small to medium-sized heads through the summer. Good for steaming, stir-fries and for freezing. 








Kale:  Lacinato (aka Tuscan)  Dark blue-green.  Very tasty as baby leaves, or in the autumn after frost.  Also great for veggie smoothies!
 







Kale:  Red Russian:  A green leafy vegetable with a very different taste. It has a sweet taste, not bitter like traditional varieties of curly kale. It can be eaten as baby leaf or fully grown and still maintains its sweet flavour. Frilly leaves and crimson veining give this plant an interesting appearance.  It is also a highly nutritious vegetable with powerful antioxidant properties and anti-cancer properties.


Kale:  Vate's Blue:  Blue-green, curly leaves on compact plants. Can be picked at the baby leaf stage for salads or allowed to mature for greens. So nutritious and so tasty. 30 days baby leaf, 50 days full.
