Product Reviews

  • Most productive broccoli by far

  • I have been growing broccoli from before Premium Crop was available in the 1980's. Premium Crop has been the most productive by far--larger heads, more sizeable side shoots produced through Indian Summer (break them out at the main stem, don't cut to keep side shoots coming). This variety has been hard find lately. Field's please continue to make available!

  • Holy broccoli!!

  • Can't say good enough things about this broccoli. Healthy, strong plants and even produced huge heads during a drought. Bounces back strong after frost too!

  • Fantastic variety!

  • I planted Premium Crop as transplants in November in north Florida. Each plant gave a huge head and then stopped producing for about a month. I was planning to dig them up, but all of a sudden they started producing a profusion of side shoots. Now it's mid-May in Florida, hot as heck, and they're still producing side shoots. Will plant from seed this fall and stagger them. I recommend 30" spacing. Mature plants have a huge leaf spread.

  • Broccoli

  • I have tried many 'brands' of broccoli. None came close to Premium Crop. I didn't think it was around anymore. It doesn't go to flower near as fast as many others. It's an excellent broccoli.

  • best broccoli ever

  • I grew this 25 years ago and then couldn't find it. Found it again here. It is everything the catalog says it is. We picked broccoli in July last year and filled the freezer. Thanks.

  • Pleasantly Surprised

  • I started 12 plants from seed, set them out in mid May, and got a good main harvest in July. I am still harvesting enough side shoots for 1 meal per week at the end of November. It completely lived up to its description. Mid-twenty temperatures did not bother it; I'll get them out earlier and stagger planting times.
