The Broccoli Raab Rapini, 'Brussica rapa (ruvo group)', is known at Italian broccoli. The Raab Rapini has delicate, tender shoots with a spicy but wonderful broccoli-like flavor. Raab is grown for the asparagus-like spring shoot. There is a reason the Europeans love Broccoli Raab, it is a connoisseur's delight. The tender stems, buds, and flowers have a wonderfully delicate slightly bitter/spicy/peppery frost. In mild climates, plant in the late fall for winter harvest. Sow successive plantings every 2 weeks throughout the cool early growing season for continuous harvest. Broccoli Raab Rapini prefers light, loamy, well drained soils. To harvest, cut the budding shoots just before the flowers open. Harvest until shoots are too small and tough.
Scientific Name : Brussica rapa (ruvo group)
