I have grown them a few times over the years and they are good. For some reason I could never get good production from them though, at least not when compared to regular brocolli.

I always grow my brassicas during fall and winter so the temps were OK. I "think" it has to do with my high Ph but I'm not sure as other brassicas do great. Sort of like other vegetables like corn. I can grow some varieties of corn but fail with others. I chalk it up to just another of the earth's mysteries.

Sounds very interesting. Just ordered some seeds. This is prime time here for them.

My soil produces some of the best tasting brassicas anywhere. Looking forward to trying these.

The market near me that I have only seen them at in all of this county, And there are lots of Amish markets everywhere. That market is only open on Thursday-Saturdays, Got 3 big ones two weeks ago, still working on the last one. have to get back for more this week. The market is not an Amish market BTW.

I remember purschasing some seeds from Park Seed literally decades ago. I recall getting a few small heads, but I might be able to do better now. I also remember seeing them often in markets in Italy in Winter. The name 'Romanesco' is not a misnomer, it seems they have been grown in Italy since at least the Renaissance.
