Eastern Broccoli Project
In recent years, broccoli has become a major specialty crop in the United States, but the lion's share of it is produced in California
and trucked long distances to reach markets.
Broccoli plants resist flowering when faced with more than 8-10 hours of heat per day. Without flowers, there can be no florets,
so the farmer ends up with fields of green, leafy plants. No flowers, no broccoli stems.
In 2011, plant scientists at Cornell University set a goal to develop broccoli varieties that will grow in the hot, humid climate and
variable weather conditions of the eastern United States. Success would result in a boon to the increasing interest in a ready
supply of locally grown food.
The advantages of delicious farm fresh produce and lower shipping costs will offset expected lower yield per acre.
This year, Twilley Seed is pleased to offer three varieties which have proven themselves in the Eastern Broccoli Project:
Look for Broccoli Burney, Broccoli Durapak 16, and Broccoli Lieutenant hybrids to grow for local market.
