Broccoli is a novelty vegetable that is packed with uncountable health benefits. One can not only derive many basic vitamins and minerals but also a lot of complex fibers that improve your overall health. It is so special that it's being studied by scientists to study if it possesses cancer-curing properties.
Light Requirement: Requires full sun during the day
Soil Requirement: Broccoli requires well-drained, loamy, and nutrient-rich soil. Maintaining soil quality is very important for its head formation.
Water Requirement: Keeping the soil moist at all times is vital. The water evaporation can be prevented through mulching the soil.
Harvesting: Cut out and use buds that are green and tight. Homegrown broccoli may have a smaller head. Therefore, the tightness of the buds should be a determinant of its maturity and not its size. Do not let the head spread out as this indicates spoilage of the fruit.
