The quality of broccoli largely depends upon the soil in which it is grown. The medium-heavy and humus-rich soils in our part of the Rhineland offer a fertile environment for all the varieties cultivated by Milz. We plant broccoli from the beginning of March until the end of July. We harvest it every day from the end of May until the beginning of November. Broccoli is ready for harvesting before its buds have opened.
