Cima Di Rapa Di Sarno
|Brassica rapa sylvestris esculenta|
This variety has abundant, deeply serrated foliage and medium-size head and is ready for harvest in 90 days. Harvest by cutting at the foot before flowering is completed. The pleasant flavor makes these broccoli rape tops particularly suitable for side dishes after boiling, steaming or simply braising them in a pan.
Sow directly outdoors, broadcast or in rows 16 to 20 inches and the same between rows. Can be sown throughout the year but the best results are obtained by sowing in fall. It is advisable to sow repeatedly at intervals in order to ensure regular harvests all year round.
