A problem I faced while growing Broccoli
by Sunanda Hulyalkar
I have planted a few brocoli plants On Jan 10,2011. The growth was quite nice till date. But recently since a week, now the head or the central compact part of broccoli started growing small yellow flowers. As the head grows to small size it starts disintegrating. I then have to take it out.
I am really worried. Don't know what to do. Can you help me?
Answer: Bolting Broccoli
It sounds as if you planted your broccoli either too late or in a climate that is too hot to grow broccoli.
Broccoli is a winter vegetable that needs cold temperatures to grow well. If a climate is too hot or it is not planted during the cold months it grows too quickly and then bolts causing it to go to flower before it has had time to form proper heads.
