Romanesco Natalino

This is so huge.  I don't usually get all wigged out over vegetable seeds.  But, Broccoli, not just Broccoli, Romanesco Natalino. or Roman Broccoli from Conad arrived today and it is the best.  Paola, my chef from Italy, grew these and we picked them from her garden and made wonderful dishes with this simple vegetable.  Our new friends Steve and Denise Haerr from Spoleto, Italy by way of Temecula, Ca. were kind enough to send these all the way to the USA.

The directions are all in Italian, but how hard can putting seeds in the ground be?

Grazie a voi, miei buoni amici
 Steve e Denise.

I'm so happy the seeds arrived and you will be growing a memory from Italy. It's a cold weather vegetable so we find we long for its unique shape and delicious flavors. Buon appetito!
