The "Marathon" cultivar of Brassica oleracea var. italica is particularly well-suited to cool weather, making it a favourite for in-ground planting or in pots and vegetable/herb gardens. It requires full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained soil. As a cool weather performer, it can bring great satisfaction to those in temperate climates.
Harvesting "Marathon" is straightforward; look for a firm, green main head and cut it along with some stem around 60 to 80 days after planting. Side shoots will continue to provide a longer harvest period. To store, keep the freshly harvested broccoli in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. This variety's resilience in cooler weather and delicious taste make it an excellent option for seasoned gardeners and beginners alike.
