    • Growing requirements: Romanesco broccoli requires full sun and well-drained soil to grow successfully. It is a cool-season crop that is best planted in the spring or fall, and is typically grown as an annual.

    • Planting: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, or directly sow seeds in the garden once the soil has warmed up in the spring. Space plants 18-24 inches (45-60 cm) apart in rows that are 24-36 inches (60-90 cm) apart.

    • Watering and fertilizing: Romanesco broccoli requires regular watering and fertilizing to grow successfully. Water deeply once a week or more frequently during hot, dry weather. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season.

    • Pest and disease management: Romanesco broccoli is susceptible to many common broccoli pests and diseases, such as aphids, cabbage loopers, and clubroot. Use insecticidal soap or other organic pest control methods to manage pests, and rotate crops every year to reduce the risk of disease.

    • Harvesting: Romanesco broccoli is typically ready to harvest 75-100 days after planting, depending on the weather conditions and other factors. The heads should be firm and tightly formed, with no signs of yellowing or wilting. Use a sharp knife to cut the head from the stem, leaving a few inches of stem attached.
