This page gives instructions on how to buy doomsday hybrid broccoli seeds from David's Garden Seeds.
There are two types which David recommends. They are the Arcadia and the Mini Burgundy which is purple and may trick scavengers into thinking something is wrong with it since it is not green.
David likes the Arcadia because after harvesting the main head, you can keep harvesting side shoots for several months. It can also be grown in the cold. He has had these survive temps as low as 19 here in San Antonio.
Broccoli Arcadia 1000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Best cold tolerance for fall and winter production. A rugged, vigorous broccoli with mid-late maturity. Big plants with heavy, very firm, dark green, domed heads with a unique "frosted" appearance. Tolerant of cold stress. Excellent side-shoot production. Harvest in about 60 days.
The next is the Red Burgundy. This produces smaller side shoot like heads. But it will produce multiple heads. And it is ready to harvest in about 37 days.
Broccoli Mini Burgundy 1000 Non-GMO, Hybrid Seeds
Abundant, concentrated side-shoot yields. Beautiful purple buds with purple-green stems. Easy to harvest because of concentrated side-shoot production and tall, strong plants. Slender stems with few leaves make for easy bunching. Harvest in about 37 days.
Keep in mind that hybrid plants are not good for reproducing seeds.
All of the variety information on the David's Garden Seeds® website, including the days to
maturity, color and size are based on data from tests done at specific
locations. Many factors, including geographic location, daytime and
nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
performance. For information on which varieties will perform best in
your area, we recommend that you contact your local county extension agent or a Master Gardener.
