Broccoli 'Belstar' Seed Pack

Availability: In stock (4)

Belstar broccoli is a fairly compact plant so adapts well to container gardening. The main stalk yields a large head with lots of side shoots and smaller florets. Belstar holds up better in the heat than Waltham 29 broccoli, but it can also be planted in mid- to late summer for a fall harvest.
