Imperial performs best during long day conditions with moderate heat and is mid to mid-late maturing under these conditions. This variety has a tight dome with nice, small dark green beads. Imperial is multi-use — performing well for bunch, crown cut and processing. Excellent post-harvest shelf life, too!

Interesting Notes

Broccoli has been found to have more cancer-fighting compounds than other members of the cabbage family. It is rich in glucosinolates which, once ingested, break down into these healthful cancer fighters: indoles, sulforaphane and isothiocyanates. Broccoli also provides high amounts of Vitamin C, folate and beta carotene and significant amounts of protein, calcium, iron, potassium and fiber.
