48 days. If you have eaten broccoli in Italy, you know why Di Cicco is superb. It produces numerous small to medium sized heads well into the summer for more delicious broccoli more often! We recommend harvesting the main head when it is 3" in diameter; this will encourage side shoots. Di Cicco is a good freezer variety, and leaves are also edible, cooked like chard. Seeds are excellent for sprouting!
