Romanesco as cut and come again..

Postby vivienz » Fri Apr 17, 2020 10:58 am

...sort of. I read in an RHS book that instead of cutting the whole head when it's ready, you can just snap off as many spears as you need and let the rest grow. Has anyone tried this?

Interesting! I've not heard or tried it, but then again the specimens I grow are not that great! Need a club root resistant variety, but I'm sure it will come as getting more & more varieties. I strongly recommend the club root resistant Monclano Calabrese. Huge heads well over a foot wide! Shame they are all F1 as they are still a bit expensive to buy.

Seriously?! A foot wide? Good grief! That's like over a week's broccoli supply in one go!
I've sown some romanesco so, of all goes well, I might try the cut and come again method, but it's easy to get through a head in a couple of meals.
