Nine Star Perennial Cauliflower/Broccoli Seeds - Brassica Oleraceae - Perennial

Quantity: 10 Seeds


Nine Star Perennial Cauliflower (usually referred to as a broccoli for some reason) is a member of the brassica family, Brassicaceae. This amazing plant is a perennial down to zone 7. The plant produces a heavy crop in the early spring for the first 5 years of its life before it begins to lose some vigour, but there are reports of healthy plants producing for many years after as well. Nine Star Perennial Cauliflower is one of the most prolific brassicas, and will produce dozens of good to large sized heads in a single season. They taste excellent, and can be cooked in all the usual ways one would cook cauliflower or broccoli.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Sow indoors a few weeks before last frost and set outside when the freezing temperatures have passed. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/8 - 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. The plants can get quite large, so for best results, its good to give them 3 feet of space to grow. Nine Star Perennial Cauliflower is resilient, and doesn't need much beyond mulch and regular watering. The plant is hardy down to zone 7, so can tolerate frost and snow quite well. It performs best in full sun, but will also yield a decent harvest when grown in partial shade. It likes to grow in just about any type of soil, and doesn’t seem to be particular to PH, but the soil needs to be free draining of water. These plants are flood, disease, and pest resistant.
